For instance, spiders and flies are close relatives, yet spiders have eight legs and six eyes while flies have six legs and two eyes.

Several undergraduates in the lab are cloning and comparing spider and fly genes that determine where and when eyes and legs are made.

Dr. Jongeward teaches:  Genetics, Principles of Biology, Biochemistry, Embryology and Development, and Developmental Biology.

Area:  Molecular genetics and developmental biology of the nematode C. elegans
