With expertise in Evolutionary and Functional Genomics, Bioinformatics, Population Genetics, Evolutionary Biology, and Marine Ecology, Dr. Nathaniel Jue conducts research on biological systems ranging from horseshoe crabs to humans, with a particular focus on fishes, that uses genomic and bioinformatic methodologies. His lab’s research is thematically focused on using evolutionary and functional genomics to understand the connection between genotypic and phenotypic diversity in both basic (marine organisms, fishes, humans, etc.) and applied (pesticide remediation bacteria) research settings. His educational background includes studying Biology and Creative Writing for his undergraduate degree at Colby College in Waterville, ME and receiving his doctorate in Biological Science from Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL. Here, at CSUMB, he teaches the following 3 upper-division courses in the Biology program: BIO380: Practical Computing for Scientists (associated graduate student section listed as a BIO595), BIO412: Comparative Genomics, and BIO410: Bioinformatics (associated graduate student section listed as a BIO595).
