 General Information

Dr. Andrew DeWoody's website

J. Andrew DeWoody did his undergraduate studies in Wildlife and Fisheries at Texas A&M University.  After a brief stint as a field biologist with the now-defunct Soil Conservation Service, he returned to A&M to earn an M.S. in Genetics under the tutelage of Rodney Honeycutt and Loren Skow.  Andrew's Ph.D. in Zoology is from Texas Tech University, where he worked with a preeminent mammalogist (Robert Baker).  DeWoody then did a 3-yr postdoc stint with an obscure geneticist named John Avise at the University of Georgia (Department of Genetics).

At Purdue, DeWoody's graduate students have worked in the fields of molecular evolution (Deb Triant), conservation biology (Dave Glista and Jamie Rudnick), and immunogenetics (Sara Turner).  His research has been funded by a variety of organizations including NSF, USDA-NRI, the Great Lakes Fishery Trust, the National Geographic Society, and the Joint Transportation Research Program.  DeWoody's research has been published in a variety of scientific journals, and here are the electronic reprints.
