The MacManes lab strives to be internationally recognized leader in the field of organismal biology and ecophysiological genomics. To accomplish this goal, we push ourselves to be careful in our observations, broad in our questions, and vigorous in our pursuit of research funding. We are generous in the dissemination our products - indeed, our vision of the future of Science is collaborative more so than competitive.
Ecophysiology and Genomics
The MacManes lab is interested in understanding the specialized physiologic and genomic mechanisms possessed by desert animals (especially mammals), allowing them to survive without water.
The MacManes Lab is actively involved in developing algorithms and pipelines for the assembly and characterization of transcriptomes.
