arzhetsk@medicine.bsd.uchicago.edu
Professor, Org.Bio./Anatomy
uschmid@uchicago.edu
The Schmidt-Ott lab uses experimental and genomic approaches to study the evolution of embryogenesis in flies, including midges and mosquitoes (Diptera). We seek to...
Professor, BSD Academic Admin
nshubin@uchicago.edu
I seek to understand the mechanisms behind the evolutionary origin of new anatomical features and faunas. The philosophy that underlies all of my empirical work is...
Professor, Human Genetics
fspitz@uchicago.edu
Our group is interested in understanding how the architecture of the genome contributes to the specificity and robustness of the gene expression programs that govern...
Professor, BSD Basic Sciences Chairman
jstaley@uchicago.edu
Our goal is to understand the mechanism and regulation of nuclear pre-mRNA splicing, an essential step in eukaryotic gene expression. Pre-mRNA splicing is catalyzed by...
Assistant Professor, Ecology & Evolution
