Research Groups

Dean Group

The Dean Lab uses the power of molecular biology and biochemistry to predict evolution and to investigate the deep past, finding a way to make the study of historical adaptation an "experimental science".

Denison Group


The Denison Lab works with cooperation, primarily with rhizobia. Subjects include sanctions and the neglected rhizobia life cycle.

Travisano Group


We investigate big evolutionary ideas with little organisms using experimental evolution. Our current primary focus is on multicellularity and evolutionary reversibility, using Baker's yeast.
