What are the origins of the remarkable diversity we see in nature?

The diversity of form and function that we can observe on all levels of biological complexity is one of the most fascinating phenomena of the living world. The Integrative Evolutionary Biology (IEB) lab uses coloration phenotypes of tropical fish species as a model to understand the genomic, developmental, and cellular mechanisms that underlie their spectacular diversity as well as the forces that shape their evolution.
