Welcome to the Mitchell-Olds Lab
Evolutionary, Ecological and Agricultural Functional Genomics at Duke University
We are interested in natural genetic variation in plant populations. We work at several levels: genetic variation within populations, local adaptation among populations, and the evolution of species differences. Our research is focused on ecologically important traits and the molecular mechanisms that control them, and their interactions with environmental conditions in the field.
Our research is supported by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute.
