The Wessinger Lab – Plant Evolutionary Genetics

The Wessinger lab is located at the University of South Carolina Department of Biological Sciences. We are a collaborative group of researchers studying population genetic processes contributing to adaptive evolution. Our primary study system is Penstemon, an emerging model system for studying convergent / parallel evolution. We are committed to diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism. Our goal is to build a welcoming and supportive environment for all researchers.
