Welcome to Peter Lab at the University of Rochester and the MPI-EVA in Leipzig. We are a computational biology lab, and we work on a wide array of statistical and computational population genetic methods. Currently, we are in the middle of a (slow) transition to Rochester from Leipzig, and are looking to recruit postdocs, undergraduate and graduate students.

We are particularly interested in the following topics:

  • Methods for the analysis of low-coverage ancient DNA
  • Neandertals, Denisovans, modern humans, and our interactions
  • Models for complex spatiotemporal population genetic structure
  • Visualizing genetic data

We are currently building our group in Rochester, and we are looking for motivated students and postdocs. Please get in touch if you’d like to join the team!
