Analyses of large-scale datasets in diatoms, an essential group of photosynthetic organisms. (2017)

The Wickett lab invites interested undergraduates to apply for an REU in computational bioinformatics and phylogenomics. We are currently investigating the nearly 200 million year history of diatoms, a fascinating group of unicellular organisms that number between 100-200,000 species, and account for around 1/5th of global photosynthesis. Our lab primarily utilizes cutting edge software for...
