Dr. David Dayan is a molecular ecologist. He uses emerging techniques in genomics and population genetics to better understand the ecology, evolution and population dynamics of aquatic organisms. In his role at the State Fisheries Genomics Laboratory, David is particularly interested in revealing the genetic basis of ecologically significant traits, characterizing population structure and connectivity, and uncovering the environmental forces that shape populations of freshwater, anadromous and marine fishes.
