... But not yet weary are our feet,
Still round the corner we may meet
A sudden tree or standing stone
That none have seen but we alone.
... Then world behind and home ahead,
We'll wander back to home and bed.
Bilbo Baggins' Walking Song
The Fellowship of the Ring
My publications have touched on topics in neurobiology, histology, fly anatomy, and evolutionary genetics. Special attention
has been given to individually-identifiable nerve cells and to the hypothesis that abundant genetic variation
at sites of tandem-repetitive DNA (which vastly outnumber protein-coding genes) might enable such sites to function as implicit
"evolutionary tuning knobs" for practically any trait. For additional detail, please see:
