Taxa Studied: Plants
Techniques Employed: Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis, QTL Mapping
Research Description: We are interested in understanding the genetic and developmental networks underlying adaptive evolution of plant growth forms and life histories. Most of our current research focuses on the genetic basis for divergent resource allocation strategies among populations of Arabidopsis lyrata, an iteroparous relative of Arabidopsis thaliana and an emerging model system for plant adaptive evolution. We use a combination of empirical (quantitative genetics/QTL analysis) and theoretical (developmental network modeling) approaches to address this topic. This research has relied on highly valuable international collaborations, and we are interested in expanding our research network to include a broader range of expertise in both functional and evolutionary aspects of plant biology. We have also been interested in using closely related taxa within the Hawaiian silversword alliance as an experimental system to study the genetics of growth form evolution.
