Genetics, Cell, and Development Biology


The Department has several faculty members whose research interests are the fields of Genetics, Cell and Developmental Biology. Specific Faculty research interests include the maintenance and repair of the genetic material (Crouse, Spell), the regulation of gene expression (Corces, Jones, Kelly, Lucchesi, Taylor), evolutionary and population biology genetics (Gerardo, Levin, Real, Schlenke, Tao, Yokoyama) and the genetic and biochemical pathways involved in the development of vertebrate and invertebrate organisms (Kelly, Fritz, L'Hernault, Lynn, Shepherd, Siegler, Yedvobnick).

A wide variety of genetic model organisms are used by faculty working in these areas including yeast (S. cervisiae); fruit fly (D. melanogaster); nematode (C. elegans) and zebrafish (Danio rerio).
