Our lab's mission is to explore and map natural genetic and adaptive variation of cognition and related neuronal traits. We use long-term experimental evolution, next generation sequencing, genome-wide association mapping and the full range of Drosophila genetic toolkit to reveal the mysteries of evolution of the brain.


Welcome to a new lab member
Elizabeth Kilanni!

Elizabeth Killani joined Jakšić & Gräff labs in October 2021 to work on a collaborative project as a part of her Masters thesis. During her one year at EPFL, Elizabeth will be experimentally testing the cognitive brain hypothesis using Drosophila melanogaster!

Welcome Elizabeth!!
