Biology Seminar: Andrea Sweigart

Dr. Andrea Sweigart investigatesh ow populations diverge into reproductively isolated species. Does speciation occur in allopatry or do populations differentiate in the presence of some gene flow? What is the genetic basis of reproductive isolation? What are the evolutionary dynamics of loci that contribute to ecological adaptation and reproductive isolation? Our research program tackles these questions using Mimulus, a genus of tremendously diverse and experimentally tractable wildflowers.

Student Lunch: Students are also invited to join Andrea Sweigart at noon on Friday before the afternoon seminar. Spots are limited, so early RSVPs are encouraged. RSVP to join the student lunch.
