Peter Tiffin

Peter TiffinResearch in Dr. Tiffin's lab employs genomic and organismal approaches to understand the genetics, evolutionary history, and evolutionary potential of plant populations.  Recent projects have investigated the i) effects of domestication on genetic diversity in maize, ii) effects of climate change, elevated CO2, and urban environments on plant populations, and the iii) genomic variation and evolutionary history of the model legume Medicago truncatula and its symbiotic rhizobial bacteria.
