Melissa Wilson Sayres

Bio

I am an evolutionary and computational biologist, broadly interested in questions of genome evolution, mutation rate variation, and the genetic consequences of population history. I use high performance computing, statistics, simulations, and comparative genomics to study questions relating to sex-biased mutational processes including, how sex chromosomes arise and evolve, why mutation rates differ between males and females, and how expression patterns vary between the sexes. I work with collaborators to develop models and analyze experimental data to understand the effects of natural selection, convergent evolution, tumor progression and maternal-fetal conflict.
