Marcus Kronforst
University of Chicago


Marcus works in the area of evolutionary genetics and evo-devo using butterflies as a model system. His group addresses questions of origin and maintenance of phenotypic diversity at different levels of organization (from molecular/genetic to the population level). They do incredible work in these non-model organisms, taking advantage of various genomic and gene-editing tools to study molecular basis of such traits as butterfly wing coloration and mimicry. His group published multiple high-profile papers (in Nature, Nature Communications, PNAS, PLOS Genetics, Genome Biology, Cell Reports), and Marcus is a wonderful speaker.
