Faculty in Genomics and Computational Biology
Assistant Professor (Environmental & Radiology Health Sciences); Ph.D. Cornell 2004. Molecular mechanisms involved in the formation of gene Copy Number Variation (CNV) and other chromosomal rearrangements. Genomics of industrial yeast strains used in biofuels production.
Assistant Professor (Biology); Ph.D. Small non-coding RNAs and their roles in heterochromatin formation, transcriptional elongation, translation of mRNAs, and sorting of RNAs within a cell.
Associate Faculty (Biology); Ph.D. University of California, Berkeley. Focus on the nuclear and mitochondrial genomes of salamanders, both of which are greatly expanded relative to other vertebrate species. Our research combines genomic sequence data, simulations, natural history collections, and fieldwork to answer diverse questions in genome evolution and phylogenetics.
Assistant Professor (Biology); Ph.D., University of Virginia. A combination of wet-lab and computation approaches to understand the evolutionary forces that shape cyto-nuclear interactions at the genome level.
Anireddy S.N. Reddy
Professor (Biology); Ph.D. Jawaharlal Nehru 1984. Signal transduction mechanisms; regulation of gene expression; crop improvement by genetic engineering.
