Prof. Roman Arguello - Assistant Professor SNSF

I am interested in bridging evolutionary genomics and sensory neurobiology. Several of the topics that I am most interested in include:

  • Evolution of sensory neural circuits and behavior
  • How do new circuits emerge (or become lost)? how are they modified between species?
  • How are shared circuits modified, and what are their behavioral consequences?

 

  • Genomics of  local adaptation
  • What are the loci contributing to local adaptation, and can we characterize their functional role(s)?
  • What role do sensory pathways play in local adaptation?

 

  • Gene family evolution
  • Evolution of new genes
  • Evolutionary dynamics of gene duplications 
  • Evolution of chemosensory superfamilies
