Peter Keightley     Evolutionary Genetics University of Edinburgh

Welcome to my web pages. Here, you will find a description of the research carried out by my group and links to publications and software. We work on evolutionary genetics, principally in the following areas:

  • The evolutionary impact of new mutations on genomic diversity and variation for quantitative traits.

  • Understanding genetic variation and adaptation through the analysis of nucleotide diversity within natural populations and between different species.
