Welcome to the Denver lab!
We are an integrated group of scientists and students seeking basic knowledge about the process of life and its evolution. We focus our research on nematodes and anemones. We synthesize high-throughput DNA sequencing, experimental evolution, diverse molecular approaches, computational analysis, and surveys of natural variation in our research program. Most of the lab's current research is focused on questions relating to genetic conflict and cooperation within organisms.
We are also interested in the intersections between Buddhism and science, exploring how Madhyamaka Buddhist conceptual frameworks relate to biological questions and phenomena. This topic is intergrated into lab activities; Dee is writing a book on this topic with Harvard University Press.
Sound like an interesting environment to study or work? We continuously consider new trainees at all levels (undergraduate to postdoc) - if you're interested in joining us, send an email to Dee: denver[at]cgrb.oregonstate.edu. More details about our scholarly activities and other aspects of the lab are provided in the Research Focus section under the Main Menu.
