The Mower lab aims to address fundamental questions on the evolution of genome structure, function, and content in plants using a combination of experimental and computational approaches. We focus mainly on mitochondrial genomes because they are highly variable in their structure and content among different plants, while at the same time, they are small enough to allow complete sequencing from multiple species. These characteristics provide many opportunities for molecular evolutionary and comparative analysis on a genome-wide scale.
