The Jiggins Lab Webpage

Our lab studies the evolution and genetics of hosts and parasites, mostly using insects as a model system. Which genes cause variation in susceptibility to infection and why is this variation maintained in populations? How does natural selection shape parasite and host genomes? What determines whether mosquitoes can transmit human disease? Our research is addressing these questions using the tools of genomics and evolutionary genetics.

Details of our work are given on the research page.
