One major research pursuit of my lab is to investigate the patterns and rates of change of DNA sequence on autosomes and sex chromosomes of birds. These data are being collected in order to clarify the influence of number of replicative rounds of division on the rate of DNA sequence divergence among vertebrates. Another major pursuit centers around population and phylogenetic studies of extant and extinct vertebrates. In performing these studies, we use a wide variety of molecular biological tools.
