Mackenzie Gavery’s new paper on DNA methylation and gene expression in oysters is out in PeerJ. Abstract: Characterization of DNA methylation patterns in the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, indicates that...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.
