Welcome to the Genomics and Molecular Epidemiology Research (GaMER) lab in the Department of Pathobiology and Veterinary Science of University of Connecticut.

We use an interdisciplinary combination of high-throughput genome sequencing, computational biology, phylogenetic analysis, and traditional molecular biology and virology. We hope that, through our research, we can better understand the genetic diversity and evolutionary dynamics of rapidly mutating viruses in animals.
