Nicholas R. Meyerson

Graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin under the mentorship of Dr. Sara Sawyer

nrmeyerson@gmail.com

I specialize in the PAML program, so please talk to me during or after the course about your ideas/concerns.

Research Interests

  • Understanding the evolutionary trajectory of primate genes involved in host-virus interactions
  • Functionally characterizing the consequences of rapidly evolving codons during viral replication using mammalian tissue culture
  • Discovering novel antiviral restriction factors in primates using PAML positive selection analysis
  • Probing the fate of duplicated genes by constructing chimeras from deeply divergent species (i.e. fungi and archaea)
