Genetics & Evolution of the Skeleton

Welcome to the website for Associate Professor Leslea Hlusko’s lab in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of California Berkeley. Our research group is interested in the genetic basis of mammalian skeletal variation and its evolution, with an eye towards better understanding the human condition.

Our research combines paleontology, neontology, quantitative genetics, and developmental genetics in an effort to approach morphological evolution from a genotypic perspective. Please explore this web site for a more detailed explanation of our research and discoveries.
