The Murphy Lab @ William & Mary


We study evolution, evolutionary genetics, and yeast. We use environmental isolates and experimental evolution to ask questions related to: (1) the social dynamics in biofilm communities, (2) the genetic architecture of adaptive biofilm traits, and (3) speciation. 


We are located in Williamsburg, Virginia in the Integrated Science Center room 2081.
