The Cohan Lab at Wesleyan University studies the origins of ecological diversity in bacteria. In particular, we are interested in speciation in the bacterial world. Our model systems are the Bacillus in Death Valley soils and the Synechococcus in Yellowstone hot springs( the latter in collaboration with David Ward and Don Bryant). Also, we are testing models of speciation that we and others have developed.
