John Gibbons is an evolutionary genomicist and Associate Professor of Biology at Clark University, USA. Gibbons received his BS from Keene State College in 2005 and his PhD from Vanderbilt University in 2012, where he awarded the Graduate Student Research Excellence Award in Biological Sciences. The Gibbons Lab studies how evolutionary forces shape the genome and how these changes influence phenotype. To address this topic they heavily utilize next-generation sequencing and  combine comparative, functional, and population genomics. Specific research focusses are on understanding (i) how human applied selective pressure has altered the genomes of domesticated microbes and (ii) how large-scale genomic alterations influence the virulence of fungal pathogens.
