Laboratory of Jonathan A. Eisen

The Eisen Lab research focuses on understanding the genomic basis for the origin of novelty (new functions and processes) in microorganisms. For many years, studies in this area were of limited scope. However, the advent of genome sequencing has allowed one to study the origin of novelty on a more global level. The Eisen lab's main location is in the U. C. Davis Genome Center. Dr. Eisen has appointments in the Section of Evolution and Ecology and the Department of Medical Microbiology at U. C. Davis and an Adjunct Appointment at the Joint Genome Institute, where he runs a small "Phylogenomics" group.

General research areas -- Phylogenomics and the Origin of Novelty. ** More detail is available Here.

  • Mechanisms of novelty generation.
  • Evolvability.
  • Predicting organisms biology from their genome sequences.
  • Phylogenomic methods development.

Model systems for studying novelty. More detail is available Here.

  • Phylogenomics and the tree of life.
  • The evolution of intracellular symbioses.
  • The functioning of communities of microbes in nature.
  • The genomics and evolution of carbon fixation
