Although great progress has been made in resolving the relationships of placental mammals, the position of several clades remains controversial.


Adaption & Aging

Aging is big questions to the biological area and we still do not know how does Nature change the lifespan of species.  We want to resolve this questions by identifying cross-talk between genetic adaptations and lifespan-control in mammals.


Social Behavior

A strong connection between social behavior and adaptation was observed.  We are conducting some filed work to investigate the behavior basis for adaptions and how they are evolved in mammals.
