I received PhD training in Drosophila genetics, and later worked as a postdotoral fellow in the field of human genetics. I look at things slightly different from many others, i.e., I may more appreacite things from the evolutionary perspective. My group uses lower organisms such as yeast as well as more sophisicated animals such as drosophila and mice, to address problems of our interests.
