Research

Research in the Pfeifer Lab is focused on analysing high-throughput sequencing data to learn about genetic and evolutionary processes. In particular, we focus on three topics within evolutionary genomics, also intersecting broadly with other related fields: 

  • Anthropological - mutation and recombination rate variation in primates
  • Ecological - adaptation due to recent environmental change
  • Clinical - virus evolution
