Arthropod Molecular Genetics and Genomics

Purdue is a leader in insect genetics and genomics advances in molecular biology are helping to address age-old questions, and new tools allow questions that were previously impossible to ask about the relationships between phenotypes and genotypes. The research interests of our faculty in this area are as follows:


Grzegorz Buczkowski Behavioral ecology and genetics of ants
Virginia Ferris Applied nematology and molecular systematics and phylogenetics of nematodes and insects
Catherine Hill Genetics and genomics of arthropod vectors of disease
Greg Hunt Honeybee behavioral genetics
Larry Murdock Biochemistry, physiology and molecular biology of stored grain pests
Jonathan Neal Insect toxicology and physiology
Kurt Saltzmann Management of urban insect pests
Brandon Schemerhorn Population genetics of Hessian fly
Rick Shukle Functional genomics of Hessian fly
Jeffrey Stuart Insect molecular genetics and genomics
Christie Williams Molecular genetic basis of resistance in wheat to the Hessian fly
