REU Research foci: the application of genomics techniques to better understand how species and populations evolve through time. Our groups incorporate experimental and computational approaches. We generate new data and devise new approaches to their analysis, such as tools to assemble genomes and to analyze genomic and population genetic data. Our interests are broad, spanning human evolution, genome assembly and analysis, pathogen evolution, population genetics and the genomic consequences of long-term environmental change.
