Work in the Meek lab aims to understand the interactions among molecular ecology, population health and persistence, anthropogenic change, and trait variation, with an emphasis on aquatic systems. Example research projects include examining population differentiation in Chinook salmon using RAD-seq, determining the molecular processes that control steelhead life history trait variation, such as the propensity to migrate, and using next-generation sequencing to understand the interactions between local adaptation and climate change in cold-water fishes.  Our lab actively collaborates with resource managers and agency biologists to ensure our work informs management and conservation decisions.
