Our laboratory studies gene function and evolution at the systems level. We build and analyze large libraries of yeast mutants in a systematic effort to understand how genes, the environment and their interactions influence complex cellular phenotypes such as growth, survivorship and aging. We use robotic integration to explore how gene expression affects fitness and how duplicate and multifunctional genes impact functional innovation and biological robustness.
