Gabriel Hernandez-Gomez PhD student

Queen Mary University of London PhD student co-funded by Colfuturo. I am interested in answering evolutionary questions through the understanding of genomes. I studied chordates immune system in the past and now I am happy to explore the fire ants and their supergene.
