We study the molecular innovation of gene expression resulting from genetic conflicts within animal genomes

Genetic conflicts between host genomes and genetic parasites (such as transposons) result in a molecular arms race that leads to rapid innovation of molecular pathways. We explore these to uncover new concepts in genome defense, gene expression and germline biology.
