Welcome

Nick Testa- 2014My name is Nick Testa and I am a 5th year Ph.D. candidate here at Michigan State University. I am primarily interested in how evolutionary changes in genes and developmental processes affect phenotypic traits, i.e. how does evolution create new phenotypes? That being said, I study these phenomena using (arguably) the best model organism for the job: Drosophila melanogaster.
