The unifying goal of the Bomblies lab is to use genomic, genetic and molecular approaches to understand mechanisms of evolution and adaptation. Most of our work currently focuses on Arabidopsis arenosa, a lovely outbreeding relative of A. thaliana. There are four main areas we are currently pursuing.

(Click on project titles for more information)

(1) Adaptation to whole genome duplication.

(2) Temperature and the evolution of core meiosis proteins.

(3) Other types of local adaptation.

(4) Gene network evolution.
