Dr Eric Lucas

Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine

Eric is a post-doctoral evolutionary biologist and bioinformatician at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. His research focuses on analysing the data from the Anopheles gambiae 1000 genomes project (Ag1000G) to identify gene duplications associated with insecticide resistance. Eric is developing analysis pipelines for the genotyping and whole genome sequencing data that will emerge from the GAARD and GAARDian projects. These pipelines will be used to rapidly screen the data for existing and novel genetic insecticide resistance markers, allowing the genetic response of mosquito populations to existing and novel vector control measures to be followed. Eric's previous research experience focused on the evolution of social behaviour in wasps (PhD) and the transcriptomics of ageing in ants.
