Editors for Evolutionary Biology

We aim to publish studies that present major new insights into patterns and processes in any field of evolutionary biology. This includes comparative genomics, population genetics, ecology, behavior, morphology, evolution of developmental processes, palaeontology, experimental evolution and evolutionary theory. We welcome also papers that revisit long established evolutionary paradigms in the light of new evidence. Read the latest research in this subject area.

Senior editors

  1. Claude Desplan

    New York University, United States

    Claude Desplan, DSc, PhD is a Silver Professor of Biology and Neuroscience at NYU and an Affiliate Professor at the CGSB at NYU in Abu Dhabi. Dr. Desplan was born in Algeria and was trained at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in St. Cloud, France. He received his DSc at INSERM in Paris in 1983 working with M.S. Moukhtar and M. Thomasset on calcium regulation. He joined Pat O’Farrell at UCSF as a postdoc where he demonstrated that the homeodomain, a conserved signature of many developmental genes, is a DNA binding motif. In 1987, he joined the Faculty of Rockefeller University as an HHMI Assistant/Associate Investigator to pursue structural studies of the homeodomain and the evolution of axis formation.

    In 1999, Dr. Desplan joined NYU where he investigates the generation of neural diversity using the Drosophila visual system. His team has described the molecular mechanisms that pattern the eye and showed how stochastic decisions contribute to the diversification of photoreceptors. It also investigates the development and function of the optic lobes where neuronal diversity is generated by spatio-temporal patterning of neuroblasts, a mechanism that also applies to cortical development in mammals. Recently, his lab has also provided a functional understanding of the neuronal and computational mechanisms underlying motion detection.

    His laboratory also uses ‘evo-devo’ approaches to understand the mechanisms by which sensory systems adapt to different ecological conditions, from flies to ants to butterflies.

    Dr. Desplan serves on multiple scientific advisory boards and committees for funding agencies. He is an elected member of the AAAS, of EMBO, the New York Academy of Sciences as well as the US National Academy of Sciences.

  2. Christian R Landry

    Université Laval, Canada

    Christian Landry received a BSc and a MSc in Biology from Université Laval and a PhD from Harvard University. His postdoc was in Biochemistry at Université de Montréal. He was then recruited as a New Investigator of the Canadian Institute of Health Research at Université Laval. He now holds the Canada Research Chair in Cellular Systems and Synthetic Biology. His research interests are in understanding how genetic variation and the organization of cellular systems interact to shape the ways evolution proceeds.

  3. George H Perry

    Pennsylvania State University, United States

    George Perry received his PhD in 2008 from Arizona State University, and did postdoctoral work at the University of Chicago. In 2011, he began a faculty position at Penn State University, where he is now Associate Professor of Anthropology and Biology, Chair of the Bioinformatics and Genomics Graduate Degree Program, and member of the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences. His research interests focus on human evolution, evolutionary ecology, and evolutionary medicine, and how human behavior and biology have affected non-human evolutionary biology. Research methods and theory from anthropology, evolutionary biology, parasitology, and population, comparative, functional, and paleo (ancient DNA) genomics are integrated in this work. He has received the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation, among others.

  4. Molly Przeworski

    Columbia University, United States

    Molly Przeworski received a BA in Mathematics from Princeton University and a PhD from the Committee on Evolutionary Biology at the University of Chicago. Her postdoc was in the Statistics Department of the University of Oxford, and was followed by a two-year stint as a research scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology. Before moving to Columbia University, she was a faculty member at the University of Chicago as well as, briefly, at Brown University. Her research interests are in understanding the genetic and evolutionary processes that give rise to variation within and between species, and focus on non-model vertebrate species, notably humans.
