NC State Genetics At Work! Featuring Sam Widmayer, Genetics Graduate Student

The main research interests of Dr. David Aylor and lab members revolve around the dissection of complex traits, specifically focusing on mouse reproductive biology. Research in the Aylor lab specifically investigates epistatic and gene-environment (GxE) interactions using classical genetic experimentation and bioinformatic analysis, powered in part by the Collaborative Cross, a state-of-the-art laboratory mouse genetic reference population.

NC State Genetics At Work! Featuring Chad Hunter, PhD Candidate

Genetics graduate student, Chad Hunter conducts research in the Singh lab that is focused on deciphering both the genetic and environmental factors that contribute to variation in rates of meiotic recombination.

The Singh lab uses the model organism, Drosophila melanogaster, to answer these questions. Using visible morphological markers, they can calculate recombination frequencies simply by observing phenotypes and test how different environmental factors such as temperature, nut...
