Understanding the conditions that facilitate reproductive isolation is an essential component to studying speciation. How does sexual selection on males and females facilitate speciation? In our lab, we are interested in how reproductive traits respond to selection by studying the underlying genomic variation and fitness consequences associated with variation in trait expression. We are looking for a Postdoctoral fellow to join our lab and develop bioinformatics pipelines in understanding the evolution of reproductive barriers and gene flow with the aid of next-generation ‘-omics’ tools.
The Reproductive Evolution Lab at NUS is led by Assistant Professor Nalini Puniamoorthy.
