Daniel Stoebel, PhD, specializes in molecular genetics and is particularly interested in how molecular biology intersects with evolutionary biology.
Stoebel researches the function and evolution of bacterial regulatory networks, specifically the E. coli global transcriptional regulator RpoS.
Stoebel’s lab is currently documenting naturally occurring variation in RpoS levels, measuring the effect of variation on the transcriptome, and exploring how other mechanisms that regulate transcription interact with RpoS. Understanding how RpoS regulates the expression of bacterial genes could enhance our understanding of fundamental mechanisms of bacterial evolution.
