Welcome to the Marko lab at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.  Our lab uses molecular genetics to ask questions about basic science and applied research in the sea, from the evolution of new species to what fish are in your local grocery. Much of our research is focused on large spatial scales, so our work takes us to around the world in search of new specimens, populations, and species.

Hot off the press: Mercury in Chilean sea bass, allopatric speciation in the North Pacific, sea star bindin evolution, polyandry in barnacles, thermal performance of barnacle larvae.

Coming soon: Egg size evolution in Nucella, phylogeography of transtropical species, massive range expansions in Littorina.
