We are studying patterns of diversity in the tropical tree genus Inga using a range of high throughput sequencing methods, including genome and transcriptome sequencing and using Hyb_Seq to retrieve sequence data from herbarium specimens.
- Evolution of secondary chemistry in Inga (with Toby Pennington [University of Exeter], Lissy Coley and Tom Kursar [Utah University])
- Utility of Inga for Agroforestry (with Toby Pennington [University of Exeter]; Kyle Dexter [University of Edinburgh]; William Millikin [RBGKew])
