{CANCELED} Biology Seminar: Andrea Sweigart

*THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED.* We hope to reschedule this seminar for 2020-21.

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.
