Welcome to the Dassanayake Lab Website

In our lab, we seek to characterize

and to compare genomes

in order to better understand

genetic and evolutionary processes

linking genotypes to phenotypes.  


Sequencing and decoding plant genomes

have been integral in our approaches.

The overarching goal 
of our research 

is to understand how to interpret

complex and fascinating messages

embedded in genomes.
