Research Interests for Juliann E. Horvath Roth

Research Interests:

As the Research Director of the newly formed Primate Genomics Initiative, I am interested in combining primate genomics with research in other disciplines. I am currently involved in a collaborative project exploring the genetic basis for the evolution of human diet. I am also collaborating on a project to create a primate SNP resource.

Animals, Base Sequence, Computational Biology, Conserved Sequence, DNA Primers, Evolution, Evolution, Molecular, Female, Genetic Variation, Genetics, Genome, Genomics, Geography, Lemur, Madagascar, Male, Molecular Sequence Data, Phylogeny, Polymerase Chain Reaction
Areas of Interest:

Primate Biology
Primate evolution
Primate phylogeny
Gene Expression
Primate Comparative Genomics
