Invasive Sex Ratio Distorters

Sex ratio distorters

Developing novel genetic and genomic methods to study the content, function and evolution of insect Y chromosomes

Insect Y chromosomes

Developing efficient systems using genetics to 'sex' populations of insects and enable male-only releases of mass-reared laboratory individuals.

Genetic Sex Separation Systems

Using computational genomics and next generation sequencing to study the forces driving the evolution of rapidly evolving genes.
