Genetics

Faculty in Genetics explore the molecular regulation of gene expression at various stages, including transcription, splicing, translation, and post translation modification.

Focus on the molecular regulation of gene expression

Faculty in Genetics explore the molecular regulation of gene expression at various stages, including transcription, splicing, translation, and post translation modification.  Our faculty also use molecular genetics approaches to study signaling, cell wall formation, protein trafficking, and neurobiology.  Other faculty use population genetics approaches to identify the selective forces that act on genes.

Faculty in the Genetics Group include Drs. Cullen, Ferkey, Free, Gokcumen, Gollnick, Gunawardena, Koudelka, LaFountain, Rusche, Walker, and Yu.
