Welcome to the GEECLAB!

We are a group of faculty, research assistants, and graduate and undergraduate students devoted to investigation and education in biology. GEECLAB (pronounced “geek” lab) is dedicated to the application of genomic tools and population genetics principles to address applied questions at the interplay of ecology, evolution and conservation.

We invite you to read our pages and information to see in what we have been working on. If you are interested in contacting us, please send a message to the Head of the GEECLAB:
