Fabian Staubach is joining our lab in May 2010!
Fabian Staubach from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology is joining our lab in May 2010! During his Ph.D. research he worked on the evolution of gene expression in natural populations of house mice (Mus musculus) and found a de novo originated gene in the mouse lineage. Currently he is finishing his work on a 600k mouse genotyping array applied to natural populations and a metagenomics 454 sequencing project on the gut flora of mice. For his research he applied and developed a variety of molecular biology, statistical, and bioinformatics tools to shed light on transcriptional evolution, mouse population genetics and the evolution of new genes. Fabian will work on natural selection and adaptation in Drosophila.
