Welcome to the Zeng Lab!

Our research focuses on evolutionary genetics. In particular we are interested in developing realistic and computationally tractable models for analyzing DNA sequence data. The aim is to understand how fundamental evolutionary processes such as mutation, genetic drift, genetic recombination, and natural selection interact with one another, and the impact of these interactions on evolution.

We are based in the Evolution and Behaviour Research Group in the Department of Animal & Plant Sciences.
