P.I.: Marta Barluenga
In my research group we are interested in the origins of biodiversity and the process of formation of new species. We are interested in the molecular mechanisms that underlie evolutionary innovation and diversification.
Our model systems are the adaptive radiations of Neotropical cichlids in crater lakes
