The overarching goal of our research is to understand how genetic variation shapes phenotypic diversity. We study this question in C. elegans and related species. Combining the powerful tools available for studying the C. elegans model with innovative genomic technologies, we strive to elucidate basic principles of how genetic variation shapes our natural world.
