Research Description

Dr. Snyder conducts research in the area of genetics and molecular evolution. This research focuses in three areas: 1) the molecular basis of sex determination in biting diptera; 2) genetic changes that accompany speciation events in biting diptera; 3) biochemical systematics of closely related taxa.

The majority of this work is derived from long term research into the genetic events that accompany speciation in black flies.
