Dr. Jinzhong Fu currently is an associate professor in Department of Integrative Biology, University of Guelph. His research is phylogenetics oriented. With a phylogenetic framework, his lab evaluates biodiversity and other important evolutionary issues and mainly focuses on molecular polygenetics and its application to the study of speciation, sexual selection and conservation. More details could be obtained by his webpage (http://www.uoguelph.ca/ib/people/faculty/fu.shtml).
