I am interested in the evolution of genes and genomes. Previously, I have analyzed the changes that went on in the soybean genome during domestication, and now as a graduate student in the Zoology Department I hope to learn more about bioinformatics and apply these analysis methods to my investigations, as well as dive deeper into the gene alterations that went on in the course of evolution. Currently, my project investigates homeobox genes in rodents, especially how these genes underwent alterations in certain rodent species
