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 stabilit; chromosome function; evolutionary genetics of aquatic invertebrates; and community and ecosystem ecology.

Faculty in the Ecology and Evolution Group include Drs. Victor Albert, Marcella Baiz, Omer Gokcumen, Corey Krabbenhoft, Trevor Krabbenhoft, Charlotte Lindqvist, Laura Rusche, Derek Taylor, and Silu Wang.
