Juergen Gadau PhD
Faculty MemberMy research contributes to our understanding of the genetic basis and architecture of speciation, species differences and adaptation. I am using social and solitaire insects and a wide range of genetic and genomics tools to describe how epigenetic and genetic variations in concert with expression differences generate qualitative and quantitative variations in the observed phenotypes, i.e. morphology, physiology and behavior. I am also interested to understand the interaction between nuclear and mitochondrial encoded genes in the production of ATP and how this interaction contributes to speciation, adaptation and the evolution of complex traits.
