Our group aims to explore fundamental questions on evolution, phenotype-genotype relations, and metabolism of algae. We use Chlamydomonas reinhardtii as a model organism to explore these questions at systems level and extend our findings to other algae that we ourselves are isolating from the UAE and other locations.
