Population Genetics & Genomics
Felix Breden is an evolutionary biologist who has fallen under the spell of immunoglobulin genes, that code for the almost infinite variability of the antibody/B-cell and T-cell components of the vertebrate adaptive immune system
Our most recent project, iReceptor, is a data integrative platform for sharing and comparing the vast high-throughput sequencing data bases of B-cell and T-cell repertoires. Go to ireceptor.irmacs.sfu.ca for more information.
Our lab also studies the complicated opsin genes underlying tuning of the vertebrate visual system, using guppies and related species.
