Analyses of large-scale datasets in diatoms, an essential group of photosynthetic organisms. (2016)

Key words: Evolution, Genetics, Phylogenomics, Next Generation Sequencing


The Wickett lab invites interested undergraduates to apply for an REU in computational bioinformatics and phylogenomics. We are currently investigating the nearly 200 million year history of diatoms, a fascinating group of unicellular organisms that number between 100-200,000 species, and likely account for 1/5th
