Coloration plays key roles in fundamental physiological, ecological, and evolutionary processes. In my research, I study coloration phenotypes to gain an integrative understanding of how genetic, developmental, and cellular changes lead to evolutionary diversification. Cichlid fishes, as a famous example of explosive adaptive radiation, are an excellent model system for understanding the genetic and molecular underpinning of this process. Specifically, I will discuss the role of genomic architecture and regulatory evolution for diversifying and convergent evolution, as well as how genomic features affect speciation.
