Severin Uebbing
Postdoc, Yale University
I am a biologist interested in the diversity and evolution of land vertebrates. The dazzling array of mammals, birds, and their allies that we see around us today, differ by adaptations which are unique to each those organisms. I aim to figure out the molecular and developmental details of some of these adaptations in different animals. I use a combination of computational and experimental approaches to investigate these questions. During my PhD I studied how evolution of the transcriptome influenced bird sex chromosome evolution and speciation. In my postdoctoral research I study the influence of enhancer sequence mutations on the gene regulation in primate and human brain development. I studied in Heidelberg and Uppsala before doing a PhD in Evolutionary Genetics at Uppsala University. Currently I am a postdoctoral fellow in James Noonan's lab at the Department of Genetics at Yale University. Feel free to contact me with questions, also about demonstrations of experiments/equipment.
