Research in the Streisfeld lab integrates several aspects of ecological genetics and molecular evolution to develop a better understanding of adaptive divergence in natural plant populations. Most of this work focuses on natural variation in flower color between populations of the California wildflower, Mimulus aurantiacus. These projects combine field studies that measure the strength of natural selection with molecular and genomic studies to try to identify and functionally characterize the genetic targets of this selection. An additional area of prime research interest involves the molecular evolution of transcriptional regulation, especially as it relates to how functional constraint and pleiotropy determine the types of mutations fixed during evolutionary change.
