The Edison lab uses metabolomics and natural products chemistry to understand the chemical basis of behavior. Our primary organism for this work is Caenorhabditis elegans, a small, free-living nematode. C. elegans has been one of the best studied animals in science, with an extensive genetics, anatomy, cell, and developmental biology knowledge-base. Less is known about the role of small molecules in its development and behavior, and our studies in metabolomics can leverage the extensive understanding of this worm. We also are very interested in other nematodes, including parasitic species. Prof. Edison got his start in nematodes as a postdoc working on Ascaris suum, a large intestinal pig parasite that is very similar to a related species, Ascaris lumbricoides, which infects about 1 billion people world-wide.
