Scholarly Interests

We seek to understand the genetic factors contributing to genomic variation and phenotypic diversity. To this end, we employ molecular, genomic and bioinformatic tools to study evolutionary processes at the level of populations, both experimental and natural, and genomes. Our research interests encompass a wide range of topics, including the evolution of organellar and nuclear genomes, gene duplication and the origin of novel function, and the fitness and phenotypic consequences of mutation in evolution.
