NSU Researcher Working to Unlock the Genome of Birds

FORT LAUDERDALE–DAVIE, Fla. – We all know that ducks, crows, falcons and egrets are birds. A group of scientists, however, wanted to dig deeper and unlock more about how these animals are related genetically. The idea was to investigate how modern species of birds emerged and evolved after the dinosaurs disappeared from the earth. This research included work from Stephen O’Brien, Ph.D., a professor at NSU’s Oceanographic Center whose main focus in genomics.
