I am interested in how genome evolution relates to phenotypic evolution: how do changes, especially macro-mutational changes, at the genome level affect the phenotype of an organism and how can this relate to adaptation? With respect to this my PhD project in the Hayward Lab is involved with looking at how insertions of transposable elements (TEs) have contributed to a) body plan development in mollusc genomes and b) livestock productivity in caprid and camelid genomes.
