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.
