Areas of Expertise:
genetics, development, evolution, gene regulation, pigmentation

Research Organisms:
Drosophila melanogaster and other Drosophila species, Saccharomyces cerevisiae

 

Research Focus:

Our research investigates the genetic basis of phenotypic evolution. The evolution of development, especially mechanisms controlling gene regulation, are of particular interest. Molecular and developmental biology, population and quantitative genetics, genomics and bioinformatics are integrated in this work.
