Craig Lowe's lab is focused on interesting questions in vertebrate genetics. Because the lab is question focused, they apply a wide range of techniques from diverse fields. They learn whichever method we anticipate will provide the most insight to the problem. They draw from fields as diverse as: anthropology, paleontology, ecology, molecular biology, developmental biology, animal models, cell culture, molecular evolution, genetics, genomics, genome engineering, statistics, computer science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. They are excited to develop our own tools when we need something that does not exist. They then distribute these tools to the scientific community to aid in discoveries made by other groups.
