Welcome to the Machado Lab

University of Maryland
Department of Biology
College of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences


We are an evolutionary genomics lab interested in understanding the processes that generate species and genomic diversity. We work in 3 basic areas: (i) understanding the genomic basis of species divergence in Drosophila ; (ii)  understanding the evolution of the fascinating mutualism between figs and their fig pollinating wasps using genomic data; (iii) using comparative genomics and population genomics to study domestication and adaptation in crops and human parasites .


Work in our lab is funded by the National Science Foundation
