||Interaction of plants and microbes
The spontaneous mutation process
Evolution of biological networks
Function and structure in proteins and ncRNA
Evolution of macromolecular structure
Dr. Caetano-Anollés explores molecular diversity and how molecular structure determines biological function in plants, animals,
fungi, and microbes of significance to agriculture. He studies the origin, structure, and evolution of genomes, proteomes, RNomes,
and functionomes for applications including bioengineering, biomedicine, and systems biology.
