Layton Lab

The Layton Lab is located at the School of Biological Sciences, University of Aberdeen. Our research uses genomic tools to resolve systematic and biogeographic patterns in marine invertebrates, to identify drivers of marine speciation and adaptation and to predict how biodiversity will respond to future climate change. The group has a particular interest in improving genomic resources for marine invertebrates (especially molluscs) and in continuing efforts to document global biodiversity.
