Laboratory of Marine Genomics at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science
We use Functional Genomic approaches to enhance knowledge about genes, gene expression and genetic adaptation.
Marine genomics utilizes cutting edge technologies to define the differences within and among species. We focus on the quantitative analyses of mRNA and protein expression and how the variation in these traits affect enzyme function, physiological performance and organism performance. Evolutionary analyses are used to define whether the variation in these traits is adaptively important.

Summer REU students of the Laboratory of Marine Genomics achieve second place in science competition. The Summer REU was developed in partnership with the STEM FYE grant from Miami Dade College.
Collecting Natural Populations
We conduct experiments on common gardened populations collected in the wild.
