Research in the Tung lab focuses on the interplay between genes and behavior. How does social behavior influence genetic variation and gene regulation? How do genetic differences and gene regulation reciprocally influence behavior? And what are the implications of this relationship for evolutionary biology and human health?

We are located at Duke University, in Durham, North Carolina, in the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology.

In defense of science (thanks to Molly Przeworski, Graham Coop, Mike Eisen).

New paper out in Microbiome (led by the Archie lab) on predictors of the baboon vaginal microbiome!

Check out our new bioRxiv preprint: "Maximizing ecological and evolutionary insight from bisulfite sequencing data sets"--complete with a power analysis/bisulfite sequencing data simulator available here! [New version of the app just posted, with recent bug fix]

Interested in our work? We're looking for talented students and post-docs to join us!
