Christina Warinner, University of Oklahoma

Department of Plant and Microbial Biology


I am interested in evolutionary medicine and how understanding the ways in which humans have co-evolved with environments, diets, and pathogens allows us to better understand health and disease. My research draws on the methods and theoretical frameworks of several fields, including: molecular biology, archaeology, archaeogenetics (ancient DNA), stable isotope-based paleodietary and...   More >

Amy Gladfelter, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

I am fascinated by how cells are organized in time and space. My research group studies how cells manage time to create highly variable yet accurate cell division cycles. We also look at how cells use the septin cytoskeleton to assemble functionally unique zones on the cell cortex. For our work we combine live cell microscopy and computational approaches with genetic and biochemical analyses.

Plant and Microbial Biology Micro Seminar: "Evolutionary dynamics in rapidly adapting microbial populations"

Seminar | May 3 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall


Michael Desai, Harvard University

Department of Plant and Microbial Biology


Natural selection and other evolutionary forces lead to particular patterns of evolutionary dynamics, and they leave characteristic signatures on the genetic variation within populations. We use a combination of theory and experiments to study the dynamics and population genetics of natural selection in asexual populations such as microbes and viruses.
