Taxa Studied: Invertebrate Animals, Vertebrate Animals
Techniques Employed: Degenerate PCR, Sanger Sequencing, In Situ Hybridization, Antibody Staining, Epifluoresence Microscopy, RNA interference(RNAi)
Research Description: Research in our lab is aimed at documenting patterns of phenotypic variation and understanding how environmental and developmental factors interact to create these patterns. We use a diversity of approaches, including comparative phylogenetics, molecular systematics, and developmental studies of gene expression and function. These studies include a wide variety of animals, including insects such as mayflies, beetles and others, as well as vertebrates, such as salamanders and skinks.
