We recently published the sequenced transcriptomes (suite of expressed genes) of pinto abalone and Olympia oyster in the journal Molecular Ecology Resources. The focus of this study was to identify genomic resources to...Read More
Aquaculture of native shellfish can impact nearby ecological systems and wild conspecifics by creating opportunities for genetic impacts on native populations. If wild populations are genetically adapted to local...Read More
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 are continually looking for new ways to engage and share with students, scientists, and the general public. Everyone can follow us on tumblr, facebook, youtube, twitter, wikispaces, flickr, and figshare. Web-based resources we have developed include an online version of the Colton Shellfish Collection, crassostreome, Research Notes on Ocean Acidification and oystergen.es.
