Explosive evolution of the vomeronasal receptor (Class 1) genes in the lemurs: an exploration of causes and consequences
Anne Yoder studies Madagascar’s unique and urgently threatened biodiversity. Her research uses comparative molecular evolutionary and genomic data from lemurs and other endemic vertebrates to reconstruct Madagascar’s history and to conserve its biodiversity. She also directs the Duke Lemur Center and encourages capacity building through US and Malagasy student education and partnerships.
