Taxa Studied: Invertebrate Animals
Techniques Employed: Microarrays, Solexa (Illumina) Sequencing, Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis, QTL Mapping, SNP Mapping
Research Description: Our research is focused on understanding the mechanisms that generate biological diversity. We use ecological, physiological, genetic, genomic, and systematic approaches to experimental and field studies of life history evolution, adaptation, chemical ecology, sexual isolation, and speciation. Much of our work involves study of the relationships between desert Drosophila and their host plants.
