Department Biological Sciences
About the Department
The Department of Biological Sciences, within the College of Sciences at NC State University, is dedicated to research and teaching in a broad range of aspects of the biological sciences. The Department has strong undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral programs and substantial extramural support to develop and maintain integrative research programs. Additionally, the Department partners with other life sciences units across the University to enhance its mission to conduct interdisciplinary research and training programs.
The Zakas lab studies the genetics of developmental evolution. We are interested in determining the genetic basis for developmental traits under selection. We use the marine polychaete, Streblospio benedicti as a model for understanding life-history evolution. S. benedicti females produce two distinct types of offspring with different developmental programs. Our research focuses on comparative oogenesis, embryology, and larval biology of the two developmental types. In this system we can integrate aspects of ecology, evolution, and genomics to answer questions about how development evolves.
More info about Streblospio and the Zakas lab’s projects can be found here:
