The Barbazuk lab uses computational, comparative and functional genomics to study genome architecture, function and evolution. In order to address these questions, genome sequences and well-established catalogues of genes and their positions within the genome are required. As more and more genome data becomes available, the methods used to catalogue genes become more robust, and ultimately the questions of genome organization, gene interaction and regulation can be addressed. Our lab works with crop (particularly maize and tomato), model (Arabidopsis) and non-model genomes where we apply comparative analysis and computational methods to investigate gene structure, gene content, gene/genome organization and regulation.
