We're all learning here.
Melissa A. Wilson, Ph.D., PI
We study sex chromosome evolution, sex-biased processes, and mutation rate variation. Primarily we use comparative genomics and bioinformatics to understand biological phenomenon.

Kimberly Olney, B.S.
Evolutionary Biology Ph.D. student. Biologist with experience in data analysis and laboratory procedures. Research interest in patterns of allele-specific expression across the human genome and studying sex biased expression.
Mollie Peters, B.S.
Evolutionary Biology Ph.D. student. Mollie is interested in sex differences in the brain and diseases of the brain.
Tanya Phung, Ph.D
Postdoctoral Researcher. Tanya studies population genetics and genomics and is working on studying sex differences in human health and disease.
Angela Taravella, B.S.
Evolutionary Biology Ph.D. student. With a background in biology and anthropology and training in population genetics, Angela’s research interests focus around the study of human evolution through genetic analyses. This includes using demographic modeling in human populations, and studying Y chromosome variation in ancient individuals. Through her research, she hopes to gain insight into the processes and events that shaped human populations in the past and present. Jointly advised with Dr. Anne Stone.
Biology B.S., M.S. student. Avery is interested in genetics, and is studying parent-of-origin effects.
