Both Ronald Fisher and JBS Haldane, founding fathers of the modern evolutionary synthesis, worked in Cambridge. Nowadays there is a strong research community working on various topics in Evolutionary Genetics. This web site links research groups distributed among several departments in the University of Cambridge as well as the Sanger Institute, the European Bioinformatics Institute and Anglia Ruskin University. We organise seminar days and a regular journal club.
