Research opportunity in the evolution of genomes


Steve Proulx, a Professor in EEMB, is looking for a couple of undergrads interested in research to join his lab.

Steve's interests are focused on understanding the evolutionary forces that structure genomes. Do genomes evolve to be robust? How do multi-gene families form? How does gene regulation evolve? Should regulation be simple or involve complex feedbacks? What evolutionary forces act to shape the machinery of DNA replication, transcription, and translation?

His lab website is here. You should contact Steve directly (proulx@lifesci.ucsb.edu) if you are interested and you should certainly mention you are a CCS student.
