About Ajinkya Bharatraj Patil

I am pursuing my graduate degree in population genomics at the Dept. of Biological Sciences, IISER, Bhopal. I am working on diverse model systems using genomics as a tool to uncover intricacies in the evolutionary phenomena. Other than this, I am interested in developmental and behavioral trait evolution, population genetics, and conservation genomics.
