Research Summary:

My research seeks to understand the molecular basis of structural diversity, genetic organization, and mode of replication exhibited by animal mitochondrial DNAs.  To this end, I am studying the mitochondrial genomes from several phylogenetically separated nematodes.  My recent studies have focused upon mitochondrial DNA recombination, gene amplification and rearrangements in the obligate mosquito parasite Romanomermis culicivorax and the plant parasitic root knot nematode Meloidogyne.  These mitochondrial DNAs appear to undergo "real-time" rearrangement, thereby generating a large array of polymorphic mitochondrial genome forms.  We are evaluating the utility of these mitochondrial DNA types as useful markers to study population dynamics and cytoplasmic gene flow.
