Genetics / Transcriptomics and Disease

We are investigating ecological, evolutionary, and genetic mechanisms governing the demographic trends in Pacific herring populations. Research is directed towards understanding genomic and transcriptomic signals that affect disease susceptibility, particularly in response to environmental perturbations.

Genomic Mechanisms that Underlie Lack of Recovery of Prince William Sound Herring Following the 1990s Collapse

In the decades following the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill (EVOS), it has become increasingly apparent that oil can be toxic at extremely low concentrations to developing fish embryos including herring, where some toxic phenotypes may be apparent during embryogenesis, but some are delayed until later in life. Therefore, acute and lingering oil may act as an insidious selective force within populations...
