Evolutionary genomics & gene regulation.

Welcome to the laboratory of Joshua Rest in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at Stony Brook University. We are also affiliated with the Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology. We also co-host the Evolutionary Functional Genomics seminar series.

We use computation, experiments, and natural history to study the evolution of biological systems. Click here to watch Rest’s video.
