Evolutionary Genetics and Plant Evolution
Our lab is focused on genetic variation in plants. Two major areas of emphasis include the impact of domestication on patterns of polymorphism in domesticated species and the contribution of recombination to genetic variation and patterns of linkage disequilibrium.
Lab Meeting: Oct 19, 2018
Bottlenecks and selective sweeps during domestication have increased deleterious genetic variation in dogs
