Research Summary

The Dunham lab develops & applies genomic tools to study genome evolution & genetic variation in yeast & humans. We utilize the budding yeasts as a testbed for technology development a&d as an experimentally tractable system for evolutionary genetics & genomics. Current projects include understanding the costs & benefits of aneuploidy, building new instruments for continuous culture, functionally characterizing centromeres across species, evolving yeast in a high school teaching lab, & developing high throughput methods for measuring the impact of genetic variation in yeast & humans.
