David Liberles

University of Wyoming
Department of Molecular Biology
Laramie, WY 82071


Taxa Studied: Vertebrate Animals
Techniques Employed: Degenerate PCR, Sanger Sequencing, Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis, Other, ancestral sequence reconstruction, in-vitro biochemistry
Research Description: My research group works in the general areas of computational comparative genomics and molecular evolution, aiming to address the question, "What makes each species unique?". Generating an understanding of lineage-specific evolution is therefore the major research theme in my group. This includes both an understanding of the molecular and evolutionary processes driving lineage-specific evolution, involving the interplay between biochemistry and population genetics. This also includes comparative genomics involving changes in gene content and gene function between species.
