Welcome to the Seeb Laboratory. Studies of Ecological Genomics aim to better understand the relationship between organisms and their environments through study of the structure and function of genomes. We are shaping our program to integrate modern genomics approaches to study ecological structure based on dense meiotic maps and to study mechanisms of adaptation in the presence of environmental stressors.
