Akseli Gallen-Kallela: Poika ja varis, 1884
Nature recycles, evolution gives something a try, and often fails; and sometimes succeeds in generating this novelty at which we marvel. But it is not an arbitrary process and evolutionary theory provides us with a well equipped toolbox to work our way into a deeper understanding of the living world. Research in evolutionary biology sets out to understand the principles that generated the manifestations of life from gene interaction networks to the evolution of altruistic behavior in large societies.
In our research we apply an integrative approach to explore some of the tiers of biological organization that have successfully arrested our attention. We mostly work from a genetic perspective and incorporate information from other biological disciplines.
