Welcome to the homepage for the Ting Lab at the University of Oregon. Our research lies at the intersections of genetics/genomics, evolutionary ecology, and conservation in natural animal populations, with a focus on mammals inhabiting the African tropics. While the types of questions we address vary, they are united in combining lab-based methods, fieldwork, and computational approaches to elucidate processes driving diversity, adaptation, and health. Our ultimate goal is to understand factors that affect the well-being of wild populations and to help inform conservation strategies for threatened species.

We carry affiliations with the
Institute of Ecology and Evolution and the Department of Anthropology. We also form one half of the University of Oregon Molecular Anthropology Group, which serves as an intellectual home for research, training, and outreach in primate ecological, evolutionary, and functional genetics/genomics.
