William Browne

University of Miami
Cox Science Center
1301 Memorial Drive
Coral Gables, FL 33146


Taxa Studied: Invertebrate Animals
Techniques Employed: Degenerate PCR, Illumina Sequencing, 454 Pyrosequencing, Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis, In Situ Hybridization, Antibody Staining, Sectioning for Histology, Epifluoresence Microscopy, Time-Lapse Microscopy, Transgenesis
Research Description: Research in the Browne Lab is focused on investigating patterns of change underlying organismal diversity. We employ a multidisciplinary experimental approach to explore the relationships between genotype and phenotype from both developmental and evolutionary perspectives. Developmental studies in the lab use three species as models; the amphipod crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis, the anthozoan cnidarian Nematostella vectensis, and the lobate ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi. Evolutionary investigations include work on a range of species affiliated with these three taxa.
