MATIOLI, Sergio Russo

Evolutionary Genetics

Assistant Professor, Departamento de Biologia, IB - USP.

M.Sc. (1982) IB - USP

PhD (1989) IB - USP

      My main research interests covers basically the field of Evolutionary Biology, comprising Population Genetics, Genetics of Speciation, Quantitative Genetics associated with phenotipic evolution, Molecular evolution, and Molecular Phylogeny.

      I also develop computer tools for statistical analyses by using computationally intensive methods, and have some experience in develloping software for Biology teaching.

      As a model organisms, I work with tephritid fruit flies of the Anastrepha genus, and also advise a project on Drosophila mercatorum.
