Dr. Lee's lab studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms shaping genetic variation and genome evolution. Their work currently focuses on the evolution of a widespread genomic parasite, “transposable elements” (TEs), who can copy themselves and move to new genomic locations. TEs are important contributors to phenotypic variation, including disease states, in natural populations. We study the intimate evolutionary relationships between TEs and host genomes through investigating TEs’ functional impacts and population dynamics. They use Drosophila (fruit flies hovering over fruits!!) as a model system, and combine population genomics, epigenomics, bioinformatics, and cell biology.
