Welcome to the Hager Lab

Our research utilizes experimental and bioinformatics approaches to investigate key questions in evolutionary biology, behavioural ecology and complex trait research.

We are interested in the genetic and epigenetic basis of sociality and plasticity, and combine behavioural work in insect and mouse model systems with an analysis of genetic and non-genetic mechanisms using methylation, expression and CRISPR technologies.
