PHYLOGENETIC METHODS - PHENOMICS - GENOMICS - DUNG BEETLES - INSECTS - SYSTEMATICS
Welcome to Tarasov Lab! We study the evolutionary processes behind Earth's stunning diversity of life forms. In this quest, we adopt an interdisciplinary approach, blending phenomics, genomics, biosystematics, statistical modeling, novel phylogenetic methods, and ontology-based tools. While our primary focus is on insects, specifically Dung Beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeinae), we have a broad interest in all living beings.
