The Layton Lab is located at the School of Biological Sciences, University of Aberdeen. Our research uses integrative approaches to investigate the evolution of marine biodiversity, incorporating field work, museum collections, genomic tools, phylogenetic inference, population genetics and ecological modelling. We aim to understand how and why there is so much diversity in our oceans, and how this diversity will be impacted by climate change.
