Joining XiaLab

Current research projects that you can participate in:

  • molecular biology and evolution involving genome replication, transcription and translation
  • biomedical and biopharmaceutical sciences involving protein interactions
  • molecular phylogenetics (of deep phylogenies)
  • Phylogeography and DNA barcoding
  • bioinformatics: algorithms and software development
  • How natural selection increases efficiencies of biological processes
  • microbial genomics: why different prokaryotes often do things differently, and how phages and plasmids adapt to their hosts and become specilized.

Applicants are ranked on the basis of interview, grades and, in particular, writing skills in English. You should show me a piece of your English writing that you are very pleased with. It can be in any genre/style, including story/prose/poetry, but has to be uniquely yours.
