Biography

Dr. Stover studies genome evolution and its effects on the biology of cells. He heads the NIH-funded Tetrahymena Genome Database (TGD) Wiki, which is housed at Bradley University. Before joining the faculty at Bradley, Dr. Stover was a Scientific Curator for TGD at Stanford University and a postdoc in ecology and evolutionary biology at Princeton University.
