  • Distinguished Professor
  • Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology
Research interests in the Wendel lab encompass molecular and genome evolution, phylogenetics, and phenotypic evolution of higher plants. In our laboratory we use a diverse set of technologies and approaches to explore the manner in which genomes change over evolutionary time, as well as the relationship between these events and morphological change. We have a particular interest in the mysterious and common phenomenon of polyploidy, with a special focus on the cotton genus.
