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 www.gephebase.org, 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.
