Miller Lab
a green fluorescent fish embryo

The Miller Lab is part of the department of Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley. We study how pattern forms during development and changes during evolution. We focus on the vertebrate head skeleton, using a genetic approach in the threespine stickleback fish, a species complex that has repeatedly evolved head skeletal adaptations. We seek to understand the genetic basis of craniofacial and dental pattern and how alterations to these genes result in evolved differences in morphology. We are located at 555 Weill Hall on the UC Berkeley main campus.
