BYU Systematics

BYU has developed one of the strongest, largest, and most innovative programs in systematics in the country. The core group consists of 6 faculty members, 8 postdocs, 18 graduate students, and over 30 undergraduates. Research projects span the range of biological diversity from viruses, to plants, insects, arthropods, and various vertebrate groups. Work focuses from the population level to deep level phylogeny and includes genomic and bioinformatics components. Funding is provided from multiple sources including NSF, NIH, and funds internal to Brigham Young University. We have recently been awarded a NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates Sites Grant, and will begin training undergraduates from through out the country Summer 2003.

We are a dynamic group and always looking for good students. Click on the following researchers to be linked to their web pages, and learn more about their research program.
