Evolutionary Systems Biology

We are interested in uncovering general principles of how mutations affect phenotypes at multiple levels of biological organization (gene expression, metabolic fluxes, etc.), and how these effects combine to determine organism’s fitness across environments. We approach this problem using experiments in model microorganisms S. cerevisiae and E.coli (soon) and mathematical modeling.
