Welcome to the Denver Lab! We investigate the basic processes of life from diverse perspectives. Current interests range from genome evolution to symbiosis dynamics to the intersections of scientific and Buddhist philosophies. We study nematodes, anemones, phage, and trees. High-throughput DNA sequencing, bioinformatics, and microscopy are our favorite tools. All research is highly collaborative. We value team harmony and happiness in our path to productive science.
