Welcome to the web page for Maitreya Dunham's lab. We study genome evolution and copy number variation in yeast using experimental evolution in the chemostat (pictured below) and comparative genomics approaches. The lab is located in the Department of Genome Sciences at University of Washington in lovely Seattle. I was previously a Lewis-Sigler Fellow at Princeton University in the Lewis-Sigler Institute.

Funding

The Dunham lab is supported by grants from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Rita Allen Foundation, and the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, and by a gift from Karl Handelsman. Members of the lab are supported by the UW Genome Training Grant and the Interdisciplinary Training Grant in Cancer. The Dunham lab is part of the Yeast Resource Center and the BEACON Center for the Study of Evolution in Action. Maitreya is a Rita Allen Scholar, a Basil O'Connor Starter Scholar, and a CIFAR Fellow. I'd like to thank the March of Dimes, Marian E. Smith Junior Faculty Award, the Royalty Research Fund, the Ruth Kirschstein Fellowship, and the UW Aging Training Grant for prior support.
