Welcome to the Hager Lab

Our research utilizes modelling, bioinformatics and experimental approaches to investigate key questions in evolutionary biology and behavioural ecology.

We are interested in the genetic and epigenetic basis of sociality and combine behavioural work in insect and mouse model systems with an analysis of genetic and non-genetic variance components using molecular techniques such as DNA methylation analysis.
