Molecular Biology of Color Vision
Positions are available immediately for recent Ph.Ds to study molecular
biology of vertebrate color vision, including characterization of opsin
genes and structure/ function relationships of visual pigments using
site-directed mutagenesis and cell culture. Experience with recombinant
DNA techniques (genomic library construction, cloning, and sequencing)
is required and a strong interest in molecular evolution is desirable.
