The overarching goal of the Sweigart lab is to understand how populations diverge into reproductively isolated species. Does speciation occur in allopatry or do populations differentiate in the presence of some gene flow? What is the genetic basis of reproductive isolation? What are the evolutionary dynamics of loci that contribute to ecological adaptation and reproductive isolation? Their research program tackles these questions using Mimulus, a genus of tremendously diverse and experimentally tractable wildflowers.
