PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Reading the history of mutations in individual plants

A primary focus of our group is to understand the accumulation of mutations within individual plants. These mutations are thought to play many important roles in plant ecology and evolution, but very little is undertsood about them. This work takes us to beautiful places, and allows us to study one of the most fundamental processes in evolutionary biology: the generation of new variation.
