Evolution and genetics

Our team examines how Drosophila species have evolved, to better understand the mechanisms of evolution. We currently study the evolution of bioadhesives produced by Drosophila flies. With Arnaud Martin I maintain, a database of the genes known to contribute to natural phenotypic differences in plants and animals. I also work on philosophy of biology, SARS-CoV-2 origin and the risks associated with gene drive biotechnology.
