Research in our lab focuses on characterizing physiological responses of marine organisms to environmental change. Using integrative approaches we strive to examine impacts and adaptive potential from the nucleotide to organismal level. A core component of this includes investigating the functional relationship of genetics, epigenetics, and transcription.
We practice open science with lab members maintaining online electronic lab notebooks. In addition we have developed a Data and Resource Sharing Plan and are in the process of providing a list of resources we use for open science. To learn more about what we are doing, be sure to view our weekly, live lab meetings on YouTube, follow us on Facebook, or check out one or more of our blogs.
