Baker Lab

Plant Evolutionary Developmental Biology

Welcome to the Baker Lab!

Welcome to the Baker Lab in the Biology Department at Miami University of Ohio. We study the origin and maintenance of plant form and function.  We tackle this problem from a microevolutionary perspective by examining how developmental genetics interact with the environment to influence phenotypic evolution.  We work in natural, agroecological, and model systems and combine methods and data from genomics, transcriptomics, anatomy, morphology, remote sensing, and physiology to gain an integrative understanding of organismal evolution and development. The basic research conducted in the Baker lab has direct implications for understanding natural biodiversity, for conservation and restoration purposes, and for improving agricultural sustainability.

If you are interested in joining the lab as a masters/doctoral student please contact Rob Baker about current opportunities.
