The Fritz lab studies arthropod evolution in response to human-mediated environmental change.  We use molecular, genomic, and computational tools to shed light on the genomic variants that facilitate adaptation.

The lab participates in both the Computational Biology, Bioinformatics and Genomics, and the Biology, Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics research clusters of the Biological Sciences Graduate Program.
