Functional evolutionary genomics, epigenetics, and genome organization

The research in my lab combines functional and population genomic approaches in a variety of species of Drosophila to better understand how gene regulatory networks evolve at the molecular level. By using computational approaches to generate evolutionary hypotheses that can be tested via the genetic engineering of model species our work bridges the disciplines of evolutionary biology, molecular biology, and bioinformatics.
