Ecology and Evolution

Neuroscience faculty study a variety of model systems to understand sensory signalling and the cellular processes underlying important neuronal disorders, using state-of-the-art electrophysiology and imaging techniques.

Focus on how organisms evolve and adapt to their environments

Faculty research concerns plant evolutionary biology; development and genomics; evolutionary biology; molecular phylogenetics and population genomics; chromatin and its impact on gene expression; genome stability; chromosome function; and, evolutionary genetics of aquatic invertebrates.

Faculty in the Ecology and Evolution Group include Drs. Albert, Dittmar, Gokcumen, Krabbenhoft, Lindqvist, Rusche, and Taylor.
