Genetic diversity is critical for the survival of any species. It is also central to the understanding of why one population, under similar environmental challenges, survives over another. I am primarily focused on determining the underlying evolutionary mechanisms shaping the observed genetic diversity found in the wild house mice. The wild house mice are invasive species with a long history of adaptation to new and the most extreme habitat. Unraveling the mystery of such adaptation is important for biomedical discoveries.
