    Research Interests
         Recent publications have addressed the relationship between mutational mechanisms and evolvability, concentrating on the hypothesis that indirect natural selection has shaped simple sequence repeats (microsatellite and minisatellite DNA) into effective "evolutionary tuning knobs." 
         Dr. King also retains an interest in neurobiology, especially the patterns of neural and genetic organization which underlie behavioral evolution.
