- Insect Genetics and Genomics
Interests include biological informatics, immunogenetics, gene duplication, and models of DNA change. Currently working on an informatics project that relates to computational neuroscience, such as ways to associate the location and function of a neuron with its cellular structure. This involves development of databases, data processing, statistical analysis, and synthesis of knowledge between cellular and higher levels of neuronal organization in animals.
