Research in the EvoHull Group

EvoHull is the Evolutionary and Environmental Genomics group at The University of Hull, UK, and represents a major research centre within the University.

The revolution in ‘next generation’ massively parallel DNA sequencing has allowed biologists to address questions not previously possible, and EvoHull is at the forefront of employing genomics to diverse questions in evolutionary biology and environmental sciences.

Within our diverse research programmes we use metabarcoding to inform ecological network analysis, environmental DNA assays to characterise organismal communities and detect invasive species, population genomics to understand gene flow and the speciation process, and comparative genomics to understand the role of reproductive mode and recombination in shaping genome content.
