Craig Lowe – Biography

Assistant Professor


Craig has an undergraduate degree in Computer Science from Cornell University’s College of Engineering where he developed interests in both machine learning and genetics.  For his graduate work he joined David Haussler’s lab at UC Santa Cruz to computationally analyze the first vertebrate genomes.  During his graduate work, Craig analyzed the types and times of mutations that created gene regulatory elements in vertebrate genomes over the last 500 million years.  Craig did his postdoctoral research with David Kingsley at Stanford University, which has given him the ability to mix computational genomics and experimental genetics.  During his postdoc Craig has studied lineage-specific adaptations in stickleback fish and humans.
