The Study of Vertebrate Evolution in the Farmer Lab

Welcome to the homepage of the Farmer lab at the University of Utah. In this lab we study evolutionary biology. We primarily ask questions about major transitions and key innovations of vertebrates. We seek to understand how such transitions occurred through a sequence of small modifications from the ancestral conditions. To address these questions we integrate functional studies with phylogenetic analyses and data from the fossil record. If you would like more information about our research program contact us at farmer@biology.utah.edu.
