Evolutionary genomics of pathogens

Laboratory of Evolutionary Genetics @UNINE

We are a diverse group of people combining skills in evolutionary biology, microbiology, bioinformatics and genomics. But we are also passionate about conservation genetics and many other topics.

We are at the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland) and run the Laboratory of Evolutionary Genetics.
