Professor Weinreich is interested in how genetic novelty fuels evolution by natural selection. Using tools from computer science and mathematics he models the evolutionary consequences of various patterns of interaction within the genome. This motivates complementary experimental work using techniques of molecular biology and microbiology to measure patterns of interaction within genes and genomes of bacteria and bacteriophage. This experimental work in turn drives novel theory.

Professor Weinreich received his bachelor's degree in computer science from the University of Michigan in 1983. Computer science has a long tradition of interest in the algorithmics of Darwin's paradigm and this provides the formal framework for Weinreich's research. After nine years as a software engineer, he began his graduate studies in evolutionary and population genetics at Harvard University. He received his PhD in 1998 and did postdoctoral work at Brown University (1998-2000), the University of California (2000-2001) and at Harvard University (2001-2006).

Professor Weinreich was appointed an Assistant Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Brown in January 2007. He is also a member of the Center for Computational Molecular Biology at Brown.
