Arthropod Molecular Genetics and Genomics

Purdue is a leader in insect genetics and genomics advances in molecular biology are helping to address age-old questions, and new tools allow questions that were previously impossible to ask about the relationships between phenotypes and genotypes. The research interests of our faculty in this area are as follows:



Grzegorz Bu​czkowski - Behavioral ecology and genetics of ants

Stephen Cameron - Insect Systematics

Laramy Enders - Insect Microbiomes

Catherine Hill - Genetics and genomics of arthropod vectors of disease

Brandon Schemerhorn - Population genetics of Hessian fly

Brock Harpur - Honeybee Extension

Shubha Subramanyam - Plant-insect interactions
