Research in our lab centers on environmental and evolutionary genomics, primarily in bacteria. Broadly, our group explores mechanisms shaping genetic and functional variation in microbes that play important roles in the natural environment. Much of our work integrates evolutionary, population... Full Profile »

Gregory Wray, Ph.D.

Professor of Biology

Office: 125 Science Drive, 4104 French Family Science Center, Durham, NC 27708

Campus Box: Duke Box 90325, Durham, NC 277080325

Phone: +1 919 684 6696

I study the evolution of genes and genomes with the broad aim of understanding the origins of biological diversity. My approach focuses on changes in the expression of genes using both empirical and computational approaches and spans scales of biological organization from single nucleotides... Full Profile »
