About Brian Dilkes

Brian is an Assistant Professor in the Horticulture Department at Purdue University.

There is a Brian Dilkes WikiCV and Dilkes lab page on OpenWetWare.

He would like you to know about PLoS One a new way to get your research rapidly peer reviewed and disseminated. It is now a few years old but still a hip, fresh and open access journal from the Public Library of Science!

Research

The lab is split between investigating the molecular and genetic mechansims that isolate populations and species and modifying high throughput genomic technology to assess gene function in model, crop, and "orphan" organisms. During my postdoc, with Luca Comai at the UC Davis Genome Center, I began looking at how genome organization can affect plant reproduction and survival. Long term interests include the roles of dosage-sensitivity in plant evolution, the contributions of maternal and paternal effects to seed development, and the molecular basis of hybrid vigor.

Outside Interests

When not in the lab or working on the computer, I spend the vast majority of my time eating, sleeping, and repairing/rescueing/remodeling.

When I sleep I dream of participating in Bonneville Speed Week as part of Goober Biofuels Racing. A resurrection is in the works.
