Associate Professor of Plant and Microbial Biology
Research Interests: The goal of the Brem lab is to understand how and why traits vary in organisms from the wild. Trainees invent new applied-statistic and wet-lab approaches to find DNA sequence variants that underlie traits of interest, as they diverge between strains and species. Along the way, Brem lab members work from a foundation in classical population and molecular genetics. Projects available to graduate students focus on empirical data from fungi and mammalian cells, with the opportunity for close collaboration with experimentalists.
