Evolutionary Biology-Patterns of Gene Expression
Lab Description

The Rifkin laboratory studies how environmental, genetic, and stochastic variation interact to generate phenotypic variation and thereby mold the course of evolution. We use yeasts and nematodes as model organisms and work primarily at the level of gene regulatory and signal transduction networks.
