Dr Liam Crowley
I am an entomologist interested in insect diversity, taxonomy and ecology. I am currently working on the Wytham Genome Project, part of the Darwin Tree of Life project, which seeks to sequence the full genomes of +70,000 UK species. My work involves the collection, identification and preservation of arthropod species from Wytham Woods for full genome sequencing, with a particular focus on species of ecological and evolutionary interest. The unprecedented quality and large number of genomes generated across a wide range of taxa will allow us to address evolutionary questions within the ecological context of Wytham Woods.
