Organisms in Biological Research

Biologists in the twentieth century have studies thousands of different organisms. But, does organism choice really matter? Is there one best organism for any problem? Using a mix of qualitative and quantitative research, we seek to understand the impact of organismal choices on twentieth century biology, especially on problems in developmental biology, genetics, and genomics.

In collaboration with Rachel Ankeny and Sabine Leonelli, this line of research is currently suported by a grant from the Australian Research Council.
