About GBBE

The common focus of our research is Evolutionary Biology, which aims to provide answers to the complex historical process that accounts for the current biodiversity on earth. Evolutionary change is the outcome of several population mechanisms (mutation, recombination, natural selection, genetic drift, migration and historical events like colonization of new geographical regions) and can be studied at many different levels. We approach the study of evolution from a genetic and genomic perspective, although we are aware that natural selection operates primarily on the phenotype and thus the relationship genotype-phenotype (development) is crucial to understand adaptation. Therefore, our group uses an integrative approach to understand the genetic basis of phenotypic diversity and evolution, from the analysis of genome variation and the forces acting on it to how this translates in changes during development and phenotypic traits. In particular, we use mainly Drosophila and humans as model systems, and combine methods of genomics, genetics, bioinformatics, computer simulation and evolutionary biology to study evolution problems from different points of view. This is done through a series of interrelated objectives dealing with fundamental questions in biology that have implications in many diverse fields. In addition, we do not limit ourselves to basic research, but contribute to knowledge transfer to society by studying the genetic basis of disease susceptibility in humans and offering services on Omics data analyses and training through the Bioinformatics section of the Servei de Genòmica i Bioinformàtica of the UAB.
