Molecular Anthropology Group at the University of Oregon

We are a research group that provides an engaging and collaborative environment for faculty and students interested in the ecology and evolution of humans and non-human primates. We are comprised of two independent yet complementary research programs that carry affiliations with the Department of Anthropology and the Institute of Ecology and Evolution. We employ a variety of molecular methods from the fields of genetics, genomics, and molecular cell biology in order to examine primate biology and evolution at the population and species-levels.
