342 Science and Research 2
Houston, TEXAS 77204-5001
United States


Taxa Studied: Invertebrate Animals, Dipterans (Drosophila, housefly)
Techniques Employed: Microarrays, Sanger Sequencing, Solexa (Illumina) Sequencing, Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis, RNA interference(RNAi)
Research Description: I study the evolution of sex chromosomes, sex determination, and sexual dimorphism. My lab uses comparative, population, and functional genomics approaches to identify signatures of sex-specific adaptation. We then test some of our hypotheses with direct experimentation using the powerful Drosophila genetic toolkit.
