Welcome to the Denver Lab!
We investigate the basic processes of life from diverse perspectives. Research interests range from genome evolution to symbiosis dynamics to the intersections of scientific and Buddhist thinking. Current projects focus on nematodes, their symbionts, and Bodhi trees.
The Denver lab is recruiting new graduate trainees (MS or PhD) for the 2020-2021 academic year. Future projects will focus on symbioses and evolution of slugs, nematodes, and Bodhi trees. See the Recruitment page for details. Contact Dr. Denver no later than December 1 if you are interested in exploring the possibility of graduate studies with our team.
