Plant evolutionary genomics and epigenetics
Lab Website: Hollister Lab Website
My lab investigates the genetics underlying evolutionary transitions in flowering plants. Plants display rich variation in genome structure, gene copy number, sexual system, and ploidy. Because of this, plant species represent a rich set of natural evolutionary experiments that we can analyze in the laboratory and the field. We employ next generation sequencing, statistical modeling and computational methods to analyze large genomic and gene expression datasets from both model and non-model organisms. Using these methods, we aim to answer longstanding evolutionary questions. Please visit my website and/or contact me for details.
