Evolution, Genes & Genomics Group

The Evolution, Genes & Genomics Group (EG^3) comprises staff, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students in the School of Biology, the School of Chemistry and the School of Medicine at the University of St Andrews who conduct research in this area. Members of EG^3 are variously located in the Sir Harold Mitchell Building, the Scottish Oceans Institute, the Biomolecular Sciences Building, the Purdie Building and the Medical and Biological Sciences Building.

Our research focuses on a wide range of topics in evolution and molecular genetics. We have strong research links with other universities, research institutes and laboratories in the British Isles and abroad. We offer first class research facilities, in well-equipped laboratories, set in wonderful surroundings.
