About Emily L. Casanova

I am a scientist passionate about my work and the communities I study. While I have a background in wet lab research working with postmortem tissue, in my postdoctoral training I moved into clinical and data science. In my dry lab, I use bioinformatics to address key questions about autism paleogenomics, including the ways in which Neaderthal and Denisovan DNA may influence susceptibility. In my clinical lab, I study the overlap of autism and hereditary connective tissue disorders like Ehlers-Danlos syndromes. Finally, I study the evolution of developmental and neural genes in relation to macroevolutionary patterns such as Punctuated Equilibria. I blog at Science Over a Cuppa.
