Welcome!

The Kelleher Lab is part of the  Department of Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Houston. We share space, ideas and fun with the Meisel Lab in Science and Research Building 2.

We are interested in the way host genomes respond to and interact with transposable elements. Current projects include genetic factors that contribute to host tolerance of TE activity, the evolution of piRNA mediated repression of TEs, and the adaptive evolution of piRNA effector proteins.
