We are interested in understanding the impact of recombination in shaping natural diversity and evolution. We are also interested in understanding the mechanisms promoting and regulating recombination in mammals.

The Donnelly group, in collaboration with others, has developed and applied cutting-edge statistical methods that utilize genome-wide variation data to detect and characterise human population structure and admixture.
