Welcome to my website!


I am Wen-Juan Ma, a passionate evolutionary biologist. I am broadly interested in evolution, from ecology & behaviour, to genetics & genomics, have developed strong interests in the fields of evolution and genomics of sex chromosomes/mating-type chromosomes, sex determination, sex and asex.

I previously worked with evolutionary genomics of homomorphic sex chromosomes, with Nicolas Perrin, John Pannell (University of Lausanne, Switzerland) and Mark Kirkpatrick (University of Austin, USA). Recently, I start working on evolutionary genomics and temporal degeneration of mating-type chromosomes in Microbotryum fungi with Michael Hood, at Amherst College, Massachusetts, USA.
