1010 Biological Sciences Building Map
Exploring how species thrive in different environments with a broad geographical distribution including the disparate ecological conditions provides valuable insights about the adaptive capacity of natural populations. Panicum hallii, a perennial grass known for its diverse habitats and substantial phenotypic variations among different ecotypes, presents the opportunity to investigate adaptive divergence. Our study of gene expression divergence and their underlying regulatory architecture suggest cis-regulatory divergence as a primary driver of expression variation in this population.
