Claudio Casola, PI
Tomasz Koralewski, Postdoctoral Fellow
Tomasz’s work in our lab is centered around two topics: i) gene family evolutionary dynamics in plants and ii) convergent (parallel) molecular evolution in C4 grasses
Xuan Lin, Ph.D. student
Xuan is combining bench work and computational analyses to study horizontal transfer and evolution of transposable elements in conifers.
She is also analyzing the evolutionary dynamics of gene families involved in recombination in conifers and angiosperms.
Jingjia Li, Ph.D student
Jingjia is investigating on the genetic basis of drought-tolerance in loblolly pine using RNA-seq data
Wiexi Zhu, Master student
Weixi is studying copy-number variants in loblolly pine using exome sequencing data
Habibul Islam, Master student
Habibul’s worked on assigning scaffolds and contigs from the genome loblolly pine genome assembly to linkage groups and chromosomes
