Assistant professor of biology, GW Columbian College of Arts and Sciences
During Lunch with a Scientist, join biologist Arnaud Martin for a discussion about how his lab uses CRISPR genome editing to understand how butterflies and moths have become so diverse.
Registration is required (no charge). Limit: 20. This event is now full.
Arnaud Martin is an assistant professor at the George Washington University since 2016 and has been carrying research in the field of evolutionary developmental biology for the past 12 years at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon (France), UC Irvine, and UC Berkeley. He has specialized in the study of the genetic and developmental mechanisms behind butterfly wing patterns, in addition to some other work on crustacean limbs and rodent teeth. He curates Gephebase, an online database on the genetic determinants of evolution. His team is currently focusing on the use of CRISPR genome editing to understand how butterflies and moths have become so diverse, and how the genome encodes morphology.
