Biology Seminar | Professor Jim Leebens-Mack, University of Georgia | Climbing Through the Green Tree of Life to Investigate Plant Gene and Genome Evolution
Professor Leebens-Mack's research employs genomic, phylogenetic and experimental analyses to investigate the genetic and ecology processes that influence diversification. Specific interests include the molecular genetics of diversification including speciation; the molecular basis of adaptation; the evolution of genome structure; genomic processes influencing gene family evolution; the evolutionary consequences of species interactions; and the coevolution of genes interacting in regulatory and developmental pathways.
