Welcome

The Yoder Lab, part of the Department of Biology at California State University Northridge, studies coevolution and the population genomics of local adaptation, particularly in mutualisms.

The lab is a part of the Joshua Tree Genome Project, a multi-institution collaboration to build genomic resources for Joshua tree, an icon of the Mojave Desert and an ecological keystone species that hosts a fascinating, highly specialized pollination mutualism.

You can read about our research in more detail, with links to our scientific papers, on the Projects page. To discuss research opportunities, including graduate studies in Biology and postdoctoral research and you can contact the principal investigator, Jeremy Yoder.
