The majority of the eukaryotic diversity is microbial. We are using comparative genomics methods to study these organisms. We are especially interested in evolutionary processes affecting the genomes of diplomonads (e.g. Giardia and Spironucleus) ads and how these relate to the phenotypic diversity in this fascinating group of organisms.
