Our lab applies computational and statistical methods to address diverse questions in evolutionary genomics. We are broadly interested in the origin of phenotypic innovation and its connection to underlying genetic changes. A current focus of our research is on gene duplication, a major contributor of new genetic material that is thought to play a key role in the evolution of novel phenotypes. We are also involved in projects that investigate the origin and evolution of noncoding functional genomic elements, such as small RNAs and enhancers.
