Davis, Brian Assistant Professor


I focus on big-data-omics such as genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, and others, to address questions of basic biological processes. I am an evolutionary biologist that is interested in how genomes and organisms evolve when under natural and artificial selection, whether in natural populations or in domesticated animals. I extend this research to study phenotypic traits, heritable disease, and cancer in companion, agricultural, and wild animals using large datasets. My interests focus on companion animals such as cats, dogs, and horses, but extend to numerous wild species of carnivores, ruminants, and others.
