Our research focuses on investigating the adaptive events that have shaped our genomes. The search for genetic signatures of selection is pursued at different levels using comparative data and exploring intraspecific diversity patterns. In those cases where the imprint of selection is confirmed, we aim to determine the molecular bases of the functional adaptation.
