Ryan N Gutenkunst
We learn history from the genomes of humans, tumors, and other species. Our studies reveal how evolution works at the molecular level, offering fundamental insight into how humans and pathogens adapt to challenges.
The Gutenkunst group studies the function and evolution of the complex molecular networks that comprise life. To do so, they integrate computational population genomics, bioinformatics, and molecular evolution. They focus on developing new computational methods to extract biological insight from genomic data and applying those methods to understand population history and natural selection.
