Ron Burton, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD. The remarkable population structure of the splash pool copepod Tigriopus californicus and its evolutionary consequences

December 6, 2019 -
12:00pm to 1:00pm
Boat Works Lecture Hall


Our research projects take advantage of molecular genetic approaches to examine diverse questions in ecology and evolution.  Primary interests include the molecular mechanisms involved in responses to abiotic stressors in the environment and the role of mitonuclear interactions in the process of allopatric speciation. Much of this work uses the intertidal copepod Tigriopus californicus as a model system, but students in the lab have worked on organisms ranging from microbes to mammals.
