Department of Biology and Chemistry
Genomics, Genetics, and Bioinformatics Lab
With expertise in Evolutionary and Functional Genomics, Bioinformatics, Population Genetics, Evolutionary Biology, and Marine Ecology, Dr. Nathaniel Jue’s Genomics, Genetics, and Bioinformatics Lab uses genomic and bioinformatics approaches to conduct research on biological systems ranging from horseshoe crabs to humans.
His lab’s research is thematically focused on using evolutionary and functional genomics to understand the connection between genotypic and phenotypic diversity. Currently, Dr. Jue is looking to further develop dedicated research projects in the evolution of complex organs (e.g.the placenta) in fishes, the functional and ecological genetics of bacteria, the genetics underlying reproductive strategies in fish, computational cancer systems biology, and the evolutionary genomics of marine species.
