Evolutionary Genomics

Bonnie Bowen

Evolutionary processes and genetic structure in natural population of animals, particularly behavioral ecology of birds, and conservation genetics of freshwater mussels.

Anne Bronikowski

Evolutionary genetics and population biology of life history variation in snakes. The evolution and persistence of senescence and the menopause in mammals.

Matthew Hufford

Evolutionary and ecological genomics of crops and their wild relatives. Local adaptation, gene flow and introgression, selection during domestication and subsequent crop diffusion.

Fred Janzen

Molecular and experimental evolutionary ecology, primarily of reptiles; the relative impact of environmental and genetic factors on variation in, and evolution of, adaptive physiological traits like sex-determining mechanisms; the genetic structure of, and relationships among, individuals, populations, and higher taxa.

Dennis Lavrov

Molecular evolution, phylogenetics, and comparative genomics; use of gene order data for the analysis of ancient relationships; evolution of animal mitochondrial DNA with a special emphasis on arthopods and sponges; bioinformatics.

John Nason

Population and conservation genetics of plants and their associated insect herbivores and pollinators. Topics of particular interest include the reproductive dynamics, genetic structuring, and phylogeography of obligate pollination mutualisms (e.g., figs and fig wasps), as well as the reproductive and genetic consequences of habitat fragmentation in animal dispersed plant species, especially tropical trees.

Jeanne Serb

Molecular evolution, phylogenetics, and evolution of developmental pathways; identification of genetic and environmental factors involved in complex trait evolution, with an emphasis on eyes and life history in molluscs.

Amy Toth Social behavior of bees and wasps, physiological and molecular basis of behavior, comparative evolutionary genomics

Nicole Valenzuela

Ecological and Evolutionary genomics of phenotypic plasticity, developmental pathways, and sex determination. Life history evolution, conservation and ecological genetics of turtles.

Jonathan Wendel

Evolutionary divergence between populations and species, speciation mechanisms, and molecular evolution.
