Garrigan Lab :: Welcome

The Garrigan laboratory at the University of Rochester Department of Biology is dedicated to the study of genomic variation, both at the population level and between closely related species. We focus on computational approaches to evolutionary modeling and data analysis.

While much of our work focuses on species of the Drosophila melanogaster subgroup, many of our members also investigate the population genomics of other taxa, including humans and species of the genus Caenorhabditis.
