The Moehring lab studies the genetics of complex traits. Our research focuses on the genetic basis of variation in behaviour and the genetics of species isolation. We use the model system of Drosophiladue to the extensive genetic and molecular tools this species offers, as well as the availability of species that can be hybridized in the laboratory. We use a mix of quantitative genetics, molecular genetics, cellular biology, and behavioural assays in order to understand complex traits.
