The Rogers Lab

The Rogers lab studies evolution of genome structure. We explore the ways that complex mutations like duplications, deletions, rearrangements, and retrogenes can create new genetic material. We study how these new mutations are important for adaptation. We are currently working on projects in Drosophila, Mammoths, and Frogs. This multi-organism approach can help us understand when and why complex mutations are important for organism fitness.

We are actively recruiting postdocs and graduate students. If you would like to discuss working in my lab, please get in touch via email. You should send your CV, a brief description of your research interests in evolutionary genomics, and names of 3 references to be contacted on request. Postdocs are encouraged to get in touch 6 months in advance to discuss fellowship applications.

Graduate students must apply online via the graduate school by Jan 1 (fall) or Sept 1 (spring). Program specific requirements can be found here. The Department of Bioinformatics and Genomics accepts Masters and PhD students.
