Moi Lab

Our lab works at the interface of plant ecology, evolutionary genetics, and bioinformatics. We develop new computational methods and analyze genomic, experimental, and climate data to understand the dynamics of adaptation of populations and the mutations driving them. We then use this knowledge to forecast species evolutionary outcomes under global change and figure out how to aid adaptation in the future to avoid species extinctions.
 
An important current project of the lab, co-coordinated with François Vasseur (CNRS) and Niek Scheepens (U. Tübingen), is a distributed global evolution experiment, GrENE-net.org, which aims to test the evolvability of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana in many climates around the world.
