My primary research interest is in the factors responsible for the generation and maintenance of genetic variation - "understanding variation in genetic variation". I am especially interested in the evolution of mutation rate. There is considerable variation in the rate and cumulative effects of new mutations, even among genotypes within species. I begin from the premise that the mutation rate is an evolvable phenotype which is subject to optimizing selection, and which may evolve in predictable ways. My research program has two primary objectives: (1) elucidate the various factors that underlie variation in the mutation rate, and (2) determine the extent to which variation in mutation rate explains variation among taxa in

C. Baer Curriculum vitae 2 standing genetic variation at the phenotypic and molecular level. Recently, our studies of mutational variation have led me to become interested in the evolution of phenotypic robustness. We use rhabditid nematodes as our experimental organism, and employ a variety of phenotypic and molecular methods to address the questions of interest. Additional research interests include the evolution of genetic architecture (i.e., genetic covariance), the phylogeography of fresh water fish, and selection experiments in any way, shape, or form.
