Welcome to The Burgess Lab website

At The Burgess Lab we’re interested in chromosome movement during meiosis: the process that halves the amount of genetic information in the cells. This is important because it results in sperm and egg cells and any errors can have a major impact on the next generation. You can read more about our research in this area here.

We’re located in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at The University of California, Davis.┬áThe Burgess Lab shares a large lab space in the BESt Lab with the Engebrecht and Starr Labs.
