In the lab we integrate experimental ecology and agricultural practices with high-throughput genomics and bioinformatics to study the genetics of adaptation and domestication in crop plants and their wild relatives. Much of our work is focused on identifying the genetic changes that underlie the formation of new varieties, and more generally, the genotype-phenotype-environment interaction.
