Welcome to the Mahon Laboratory at Central Michigan University.  As a part of the Department of Biology and the Institute for Great Lakes Research at CMU, our focus is on using molecular genetic tools to explore organismal detection, biodiversity, and phylogeography in both aquatic and marine ecosystems.
