The Mission of the Gould Lab Group is to investigate the ecology and genetics of insect pests in order to better understand natural and human-induced evolution. They believe that this knowledge will contribute to improving food production, and the health of humans and the environment. The group uses diverse approaches to achieving these goals, ranging from molecular analysis and ecological experiments to mathematical and computer modeling.
