Applied and Computational Mathematics, Princeton University
Evolution by natural selection is a fundamental property of life. I want to understand, predict and control how microbes evolve and adapt to their environment.

PhD
Ecology and Evolution, Stanford University
I am interested in how biotic interactions in microbial communities affect adaption. I currently study a simple community that consists of yeast S.cerevisiae and alga C.reinhardtii. I observe how these two species are adapting to living with each other.

MSc
Biotechnology, Belarusian State Technical University, Belarus
I measure how the effects of mutations on fitness depend on the genetic background and on the environment in yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Huanyu Kuo
PhD student
MSc
Physics, National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan
I am interested in population genetics and quantitative biology. My research question is: How does the proteome allocation changes in bacterium E.coli as it adapts?

BS
Molecular Biology, University of California San Diego
I study how the presence of a gene-drive element in the genome affects mutation rates and long-term evolution in yeast S. cerevisiae.

Undergraduate student
BS
Molecular Biology, University of California San Diego
I study the variation in mutation rates across the yeast S. cerevisiae genome. I hope to understand the origins and consequences of this variation.
