As Group Leader of Evolutionary Genomics, Dr Wilfried Haerty’s current research interests focuses on characterising functional non-coding sequences and the evolutionary constraints acting on these elements across many species with a strong focus on mammalian genomes. Another significant part of his research involves the identification and characterisation of functional long non-coding RNAs in humans. He uses comparative genomics approaches to quantify the action of selection acting on non-coding elements, with a strong focus on the patterns of sequence variation among populations.
