We work on hybridization barriers and the consequences of polyploidy for fitness and fertility. We use a combination of quantitative genetics, wet-lab genomics, and old-fashioned observation of the eudicot geneticist's favorite model, Arabidopsis thaliana. The project includes the immediate consequences of interspecies and interploidy hybridization for seed development, the role of genomic divergence on the fitness of neo-allopolyploids, and the role of genomic dosage in the expression of heterosis.

The lab uses genetics and genomics to investigate the consequences of genome dosage and genetic divergence on fitness and fertility. We also design novel genetic methods that utilize high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies for crop improvement and gene discovery.

Functional Genomics of Polyploidy and Hybridization

Welcome to the Dilkes Lab at Purdue University. Brian Dilkes is a member of the Molecular Evolutionary Genetics training group and the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture. Brian Dilkes' CV can be found in a Wiki format here at OWW.

The lab uses genetics and genomics to investigate the consequences of genome dosage and genetic divergence on fitness and fertility. We also design novel genetic methods that utilize high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies for crop improvement and gene discovery.
