Logotipo DIVERGE abreviadissimo 100dpiAt the Cordeiro Lab we research the genetic, ecological, and evolutionary processes underlying the evolution of Neotropical species, emphasizing Drosophilidae and Drosophilidae-flower interactions. The projects developed in the laboratory aim to identify, analyze and understand the mechanisms that lead to the patterns of the genetic and ecological diversity of species in the Neotropics.

Juliana Cordeiro, PhD. Associate professor

My projects are focused on the comprehension of ecological specialization evolution and the diversification of populations and species of Neotropical drosophilids. In this context, my research is related to understanding the genetic, ecological, and evolutionary processes that outline the evolution of species, emphasizing drosophilid-flower interactions. In this way, the projects involve analyzes of genetic diversity, ecological analyzes, DNA barcoding and metabarcoding, population genetics and molecular phylogeny, etc.
