Taxa Studied: Plants
Techniques Employed: Quantitative PCR (qPCR), Microarrays, 454 Pyrosequencing, Solexa (Illumina) Sequencing, Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis, QTL Mapping, SNP Mapping
Research Description: Research interests in my lab encompass molecular, genome, 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 relationships among genomic and morphological change. We have a particular interest in the mysterious and common phenomenon of polyploidy, with a special focus on the cotton genus.
