At the University of Oklahoma’s Laboratories of Molecular Anthropology and Microbiome Research (LMAMR), we conduct studies in anthropological genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics.

We address questions concerning human and microbial population history, the evolution of disease-associated genetic variation, and the relationship between cultural, environmental, and genetic variation. In particular, we are interested in how the relationship between humans and microbes has changed through time and how our microbiomes influence health and disease in diverse populations both today and in the past.
