All things evolution and Mimulus.
Thom Nelson —
Thom is the current UNVEIL Postdoc Fellow, focused on the mechanisms and consequences of gene copy number variation in yellow monkeyflowers. But he is also deeply involved in lab projects on chromosomal rearrangements in the M. lewisii-cardinalis group, adaptation to thermal soils in Yellowstone, and pretty much everything else.
Kory Kolis —
Kory is using population genomics to understand how geography, local adaptation, and mating system structure genetic variation in Yellowstone yellow monkeyflowers.
Colette Berg —
Colette just finished her M.S. working on phenology and mating system in Triodanis, and is beginning to explore many possible projects in Mimulus.
Brooke Kern —
Brooke is doing her Honors College thesis on the genetic basis of reproductive character displacement (flower color) in Mimulus bicolor.
Andrew is finishing up his Biochem degree and helping with gene expression and bioinformatics projects.
Brook Schill —
Brook is studying the genetic basis of stigma closure, a cool Mimulus trait lost in all the self-pollinating species.
Matthew Samuli —
Matt is working on an Honor’s thesis on the genetic basis of diverse traits distinguishing hummingbird-pollinated M. cardinalis from closely related selfer M. parishii.
Evan MacArthur-Waltz —
Hellgate High Junior
Evan has been working on the fitness effects of gene copy number variation in the wild.
Kalob Baesen — Freshman
Kalob is currently cutting his Mimulus research teeth by transplanting many, many seedlings.
