Anholt Robert R.H.

      William Neal Reynolds Distinguished Professor of Biology and Genetics
        Director of the W. M. Keck Center for Behavioral Biology


Research in the Anholt laboratory focuses on (1) dissecting the genetic architecture of behavior inDrosophila melanogaster, including olfactory behavior, aggression, and startle behavior; (2) using comparative and translational genomic approaches to develop Drosophila as a model for identifying ensembles of genes that predispose to human disorders, including alcohol sensitivity and glaucoma; (3) assessing environmental plasticity of behavioral phenotypes and gene-environment interactions; and (4) determining the functions of the olfactomedin gene family in dendritic differentiation of olfactory sensory neurons, using conditional knock-out mice.
