Vector Genetics Laboratory
University of California, Davis
The Vector Genetics Laboratory at UC Davis is ...dedicated to research and training in the areas of population & molecular genetics, genomics and bioinformatics of insect vectors of human and animal disease. We have developed a program aimed at expanding knowledge that may be applied to improving control of disease vectors and that also addresses problems of interest in the field of evolutionary genetics.
We are currently engaged in a range of projects, but the major research focus is on vectors of malaria in Africa.
The research programs within the Vector Genetics Laboratory are directed by Gregory Lanzaro , a professor in the Department of Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology (PMI) of the School of Veterinary Medicine (VM), Anton Cornel, a professor in the Department of Entomology and Nematology, and Yoosook Lee, Asst. Researcher in VM:PMI.
