Prokaryotic genomes are fluid and change rapidly over evolutionary time, because of the prevalence of horizontal gene transfer (HGT) among even distantly related lineages. I am working on quantitative and stochastic modeling of HGT in the broader context of how prokaryotes have contributed to the origin of eukaryotes. This also involves gaining a better understanding of what characteristics of genes and genomes boost or hinder HGT.
