Welcome to the Dechaine Lab

The Dechaine lab employs field and laboratory research techniques to investigate questions in plant evolutionary genetics. Research topics include: environmental plasticity, interactions between crop plants and their wild relatives, evolution of invasive and weedy species, and the genetic basis of maternal effects. Check out our research page for more information.

Potential graduate and undergraduate students should contact Dr. Dechaine by email for more information.
