Greg Barsh is an Investigator and Faculty Chair at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology in Huntsville, Alabama, and also holds a faculty appointment at Stanford University. He received an MD and PhD from the University of Washington, and obtained postgraduate medical genetics training at UC Los Angeles and UC San Francisco. His research group studies the genetics of morphologic variation within and between species as a means to better understand fundamental aspects of developmental and evolutionary biology.
Periodic color patterns such as cheetah spots and tiger stripes are of longstanding interest to developmental and evolutionary biologists. Understanding the molecular basis of such patterns has heretofore not been possible because the most prominent examples occur in natural populations of wild felids. Using single cell RNA-seq and forward genetics of domestic cats, our research group has discovered previously unknown aspects of embryonic skin development that reveal a morphologic and molecular signature for color pattern establishment.
