Research Summary:

The Herron Lab at Georgia Tech studies various aspects of the evolutionary origins of multicellularity through a combination of experimental, theoretical, and comparative approaches. Our main model systems are the volvocine algae (Volvox and its relatives) and their close unicellular relative, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.
