Dr. Evans is interested in how new sex chromosomes evolve, and how demography, molecular evolution, recombination, and natural selection differently affect sex chromosomes and autosomes. He is also interested in the evolution of polyploid genomes, how redundant genetic elements influence genome evolution, and the population genomics of speciation.
Each year Heredity awards a prize for the best paper led by a PhD, Master’s or undergraduate student. Papers can be considered up to 3 years after the original project/degree completion.
Read papers from this years winners and all eligible entrants in our latest collection.
To be considered for the 2022 prize, please indicate your eligibility on the submission form.
