Welcome to the Lab!
Research in my lab focuses on plant evolutionary biology, spanning population genetics to deep phylogeny. My main interest is in ferns (including Pteridium and Ceratopteris), but students in the lab are also working on flowering plants, including Eriogonum, Populus, Allenrolfea, Betula, and Boechera. The lab uses a wide array of tools, including next-generation genomic sequencing, RNA-seq, Rad-seq (GBS), single-gene Sanger sequencing, microsatellites, and AFLPs.
What Brings You to the Wolf Lab Today?
As buds give rise by growth to fresh buds, and these, if vigorous, branch out and overtop on all sides many a feebler branch, so by generation I believe it has been with the great Tree of Life, which fills with its dead and broken branches the crust of the earth, and covers the surface with its ever-branching and beautiful ramifications.
