We are interested at genomic and epigenomic mechanisms of sex determination and sex chromosome evolution. The lab is currently focusing on birds and Drosophila, and aims to use them as models to answer several fundamental questions: How do the sex-determining genes originate? How do the sex chromosomes suppress recombination? And how does the Y/W chromosome degenerate?
