    Rebecca
    Johnson

    I co-developed and co-manage the current Citizen Science program at the California Academy of Sciences. My past research primarily focused on the evolutionary history of nudibranchs (sea slugs) and the evolution of color pattern in this group, but I am a broadly trained invertebrate zoologist, marine biologist, and biodiversity scientist. I am interested in combining historical museum collections data and current observational data to understand climate and land use change.

    The study of mesophotic reef fish communities is among my major research interests. I am exploring biodiversity and evolutionary processes of reef fishes in isolated seamounts and oceanic islands of the Atlantic Ocean. The discovery of endemic species and the assessment of their distribution and genetic patterns have contributed to a better understanding about the origin of species and biodiversity in these isolated environments.

    I work in the Institute for Biodiversity Science & Sustainability, Center for Comparative Genomics. I provide computing support for our research projects. This includes coding (genomics apps, mostly), devops, infrastructure buildout, volunteer recruiting and mentoring, bioinformatics (taxonomy), and both basic research and computing support in genomics.

    The Simison lab investigates the processes that generate, maintain, and reduce biodiversity. In particular, we are interested in the process of speciation. We use comparative genomics techniques such as RADseq, Ultra Conserved Elements, transcriptomics, and whole genomes to study the role of admixture and introgression in speciation. We are currently focusing on the globally invasive red eared slider turtle system (Trachemys scripta elegans) native to North America.
