Welcome to Kozak Lab at UMass Dartmouth
Evolutionary genomics of speciation, mate choice, and conservation
How do new species form? How are species maintained?
We study what causes barriers to mating to evolve and the stability of these barriers as environments change.
Our research focuses on the genetic basis and interaction with phenotype plasticity of hybridization and mating traits.
