Research Interest:  

I am broadly interested in the evolution of eukaryotic genomes. I study genome organization in fungi, particularly as it relates to the bizarre diversity of fungal mating systems. For my thesis, I am investigating the mating loci of several species of Amanita mushrooms in order to learn more about the organization of this genome region and how it may be related to the evolution of the mushroom life cycle.… Read more about Holly Elmore

I am interested in the evolutionary implications of parent-offspring conflict, with a focus on genomic imprinting and fetal/maternal microchimerism. I am currently working towards understanding these phenomena from a behavioural, psychological, and biological perspective.  This includes interdisciplinary work on Prader-Willi Syndrome and Angelman Syndrome, as well as various molecular and behavioural projects with mice. … Read more about Jen Kotler

Graduate Student

I am interested in a variety of evolutionary questions, including: intragenomic conflicts (and genomic imprinting) in humans; the evolution of peculiar morphologies in birds and mammals; and environmental influence on individual morphology and behaviour. My current work focuses on evolution by sensory bias and unusual feather morphologies (e.g., super-black feathers) in a range of taxa. … Read more about Dakota McCoy
