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.

Papers hot off the press:  Phylogeny and egg size evolution in Nucella, Mercury in Chilean sea bass, allopatric speciation in the North Pacific, sea star bindin evolution, polyandry in barnacles.


More on seafood: The President’s Task Force will soon make recommendations to combat seafood mislabeling and illegal fishing.  Read about this in Peter’s Op Ed in the LA Times. 


Coming soon: Phylogeography of transtropical species, massive range expansions in Littorina.
