Blow Fly Genetics and Genomics
Blow flies develop on decomposing materials and transmit over 100 human pathogens. The Tarone Laboratory collaborates with the Tomberlin Laboratory to understand the molecular biology, evolutionary ecology, population genetics, and genomics of interactions between microbes and blow flies. The Tarone lab is currently also assisting colleagues at Yale University in the annotation of the tsetse fly genome.
