Dr. Harbison’s lab investigates the genetic networks underlying sleep and circadian rhythms in natural populations of Drosophila using systems genetics approaches. She is interested in the relationship between sleep and evolutionarily conserved fitness traits; the degree to which circadian behavior regulates sleep; epistatic interactions among polymorphisms and their influence on sleep; and the response of genetic networks for sleep to different environments.
