A research group at the
Bioinformatics Centre, Aarhus University

We use population genomic analysis and modelling to address the fundamental mechanisms of evolution
- with a special affinity for the unique role of sex chromosomes and meiotic drive.

Research

We work on how selection and recombination together shape genetic variation, the evolution of genomes, and the formation of new species. Read more here.

Software

We make computational approaches available as web servers, scientific software, or programming libraries. Read more here.

Popular science

We strive to present our findings in a way accessible to wider audience. Read more here.
