Researchers in the Genetics, Ecology and Evolution research theme study animals in their environments, finding out how genes create organisms, and how organisms adapt to their surroundings.
We examine fundamental genetic processes including:
We also carry out behavioural, immunological and ecological investigations in many animal groups.
Our research is funded by a variety of research councils and charities.
