Our laboratory is interested in understanding how naturally occurring genetic variation leads to the stunning array of phenotypic diversity that we see on the planet. Using creative, multidisciplinary, and collaborative approaches, we have deciphered fundamental principles in genetics, explored global microbial population structures, and interrogated cellular processes associated with fungal pathogenesis. Our current research utilizes molecular engineering in two areas: 1) developing multiplexed assays of variant effect to assay human genetic variation on massively parallel scales and 2) developing powerful experimental resources for delineating the genetic architecture of complex and quantitative traits.
