Dr. Felix Breden
I am a population geneticist interested in behaviour, sexual selection, guppies and human immunogenetics. I moved with my wife, Jamie Scott, from the University of Missouri-Columbia to Simon Fraser University in 1993. I have worked on toads, beetles, cornborers, and mathematical models of the evolution of social behaviour. I now concentrate on opsin evolution and speciation in guppies, and how variability in human immunoglobulin genes can affect susceptibility to autoimmune and infectious diseases, and response to vaccines.
