Dr Arne Jacobs
I am an evolutionary biologist interested in the genomic and gene regulatory basis of phenotypic evolution. I am currently a Research Fellow at the University of Glasgow, mainly working on the genetic basis and functional mechanisms of life-history evolution and intestine development in European lampreys.
In my research, I integrate phenotypic, developmental, functional genomic and population genomic approaches to understand the proximate and ultimate mechanisms underlying rapid adaptation and phenotypic evolution. I study a wide range of species and systems, although my main focus lies on fishes.
