Laboratory of Artificial & Natural Evolution
Prof. M. Milinkovitch
For more than 10 years, the core activities in my lab revolved around the production of experimental data and the development of tools and algorithms in Evolutionary Genetics (Conservation Genetics, Molecular Phylogenetics, and Applied Evolutionary Genetics). Since 2008, we combine Evolutionary Developmental Biology (EvoDevo) and the study of physical processes (Physics of Biology) to understand the mechanisms generating complexity and diversity in the living world. We specialise on non-classical model species in reptiles and mammals and we integrate data and analyses from comparative genomics, molecular developmental genetics, as well as computer modelling and numerical simulations.
