Research

François-Joseph Lapointe is a biologist and bioartist at the biology department at the University of Montréal where he manages a molecular and evolutionary ecology lab. In terms of his scientific research, he is interested in phylogenetics, systematics and population genetics. For of his artistic work, he is inspired by molecular biology and genetic models. His most recent project consisted of sequencing his and his partner’ microbiomes to generate metagenomic selfies.
