Professor Weinreich is interested in how genetic novelty fuels evolution by natural selection. Using tools from computer science and mathematics he models the evolutionary consequences of various patterns of interaction within the genome. This motivates complementary experimental work using techniques of molecular biology and microbiology to measure patterns of interaction within genes and genomes of bacteria and bacteriophage. This experimental work in turn drives novel theory.
