Thomas Cavalier-Smith Evolutionary biology
Thomas Cavalier-Smith’s research focuses on the evolution, ecology and biogeography of amoeboid and flagellate free-living Protozoa using cell culturing, DNA sequencing, phylogenetic analysis, bioinformatics and light and electron microscopy. His theoretical interests range from the origin of cells and their diversification to make the major bacterial and eukaryotic groups, to protein-targeting mechanisms in secondary symbiogenesis.
