Taxa Studied: Plants
Techniques Employed: Degenerate PCR, Quantitative PCR (qPCR), Sanger Sequencing, 454 Pyrosequencing, Solexa (Illumina) Sequencing, Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis
Research Description: Our lab studies the origin and maintenance of floral diversity, particularly in Neotropical taxa. This research program combines evolutionary genomics, phylogenetics, comparative methods, and pollination ecology. We aim to address questions such as what ecological factors drive floral divergence, and what molecular mechanisms are responsible for these floral transitions?
