Welcome. Please see the links on the left. Click here for a CV.
We study the origin and evolution of complex genomes and RNA-mediated epigenetic inheritance, especially in the scrambled and fragmented genome of Oxytricha, featured on the January 2013 cover of PLoS Biology and various articles and blogs, such as this one.
Read a commentary or news story about our recent (December 2012) Cell article on piRNAs that protect the genome against DNA deletion. or a news story about our 2009 Science paper on A Functional Role for Transposases in a Large Eukaryotic Genome. or a news story about our 2008 Nature article on RNA-mediated epigenetic programming of a genome-rearrangement pathway.
