Welcome...

The Molecular Ecology and Evolution group at Bangor (MEEB) is a leading research division of the School of Natural Sciences, within the College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at Bangor University. MEEB is an internationally leading research group focusing on the diversity and function of both micro- and macro-organisms, including plants, microorganisms and animals throughout terrestrial, aquatic and aerobiological biomes. A central part of our work involves the application of genetics, genomics, transcriptomics and other high-throughput molecular techniques to address fundamental evolutionary and ecological questions relating to the origins, levels, distribution and ecological significance of genetic variation. We work across all biological levels from within species to whole ecosystems. In MEEB we complement molecular genetic data with detailed ecological, behavioural, physiological, microbiological and environmental data to understand the underlying causes of individual, population or species diversity in time and space.
