PhD
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
Cell and Molecular Biology, Azad University of Tehran, Iran
I am passionate about molecular biology research. I love using the latest technology to learn more about the genomes and genetic engineering.

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.

PhD student
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?

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.

Rotation PhD student
MSc
Biology, University of California San Diego
I am interested in designing “gene drives”, which are self-propagating, CRISPR-based genetic systems that lead to biased inheritance of desired phenotypes. I am currently investigating the evolutionary consequences of these gene drives.
