Plant Genome Diversity Volume 2: Physical Structure, Behaviour and Evolution of Plant Genomes
by Johann Greilhuber, Jaroslay Dolexal, Jonathan Wendel, and Ilia J. Leitch
Welcome to the Wendel Lab!
Research interests in my lab encompass molecular and genome evolution, phylogenetics, and phenotypic evolution of higher plants. In our laboratory we use a diverse set of technologies and approaches to explore the manner in which genomes change over evolutionary time, as well as the relationship between these events and morphological change. We have a particular interest in the mysterious and common phenomenon of polyploidy, with a special focus on the cotton genus.
I hope you explore our web page and enjoy what you find. If you have any questions about our research or opportunities in our lab, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
