Magwene Lab |


Evolutionary Genomics and Systems Biology

Genomic research in our lab is focused on characterizing genetic variation within and between species and exploring the consequences of that variation in terms of genetic networks and cellular phenotypes.

Computational Biology and Bioinformatics

Computational and bioinformatics research in the Magwene lab is focused on developing analytical and algorithmic approaches for addressing problems in quantitative genetics and systems biology.

Model Organisms

Our current experimental work exploits the awesome power of yeast genetics, using the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and the pathogenic yeast, Cryptococcus neoformans.


Our research has been generously funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF funding) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH funding).
