The authors have a broad interest in the genetic basis of evolutionary adaptation. Laura Ferguson, Siu Fai Lee, Nicola Nadeau and Simon Baxter, Nicola Chamberlain, Richard ffrench-Constant and Chris Jiggins are specifically working on the genetics of wing patterning in Heliconius butterflies. The work was carried out as part of Laura’s PhD, and the other group members were postdoctoral researchers. Mathieu Joron is a senior researcher in Paris focusing on the genetics of the polymorphic Heliconius species, H. numata. Paul Wilkinson, Alexie Papanicolaou, Sujai Kumar and Thuan-Jin Kee are interested in developing bioinformatic tools for analysis of evolutionary problems. Richard Clark, Claire Davidson, Rebecca Glithero and Helen Beasley are interested in genomic sequencing and analysis. Heiko Vogel is an expert in preparation of transcriptome libraries, and has a general interest in the genetic aspects of chemical ecology.
