Bioinformatics Ecology Evolutionary Biology Genetics Genomics Molecular Biology Systematics

The concept of evolutionary biology has been continually expanded and current systematic study now proceeds through a synthesis of genomics and bioinformatics such as phylogenomics. Shin lab is studying phylogenomics and evolution using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data from various insect taxa. Our lab’s research program is across the spectrum of systematic study – from taxonomy to phylogenomics.

1. Phylogenomics
2. Evolutionary biology
3. Systematics
4. Symbiosis and evolution
5. Environmental and climate change
6. Biodiversity
