In the Huber lab, we are driven to understand how evolutionary mechanisms such as mutation, recombination, and natural selection shape genetic diversity and the variability between individuals and species.
We develop novel population genetic and machine learning methods for detecting and understanding adaption in plants and animals. Sequencing thousands of years old human remains allows us to investigate how environmental pressures and lifestyle changes have shaped our own genomes.
Our research has important implications for the preservation and protection of endangered species and understanding genetic disorders.
