Donoghue Lab Projects

Members of the Donoghue lab are engaged in a wide variety of projects that generally focus on plants and have a phylogenetic component. The projects highlighted below are the ones that are currently funded through external sources (mainly the US National Science Foundation), but several others are included to illustrate the breadth of activities. Ongoing graduate student and postdoc projects can be accessed through individual grad student pages.
