Claus Wilke received a PhD in theoretical physics from the Ruhr-University of Bochum in Germany in 1999. He then went to Caltech as a postdoc in computational evolutionary biology under the supervision of Chris Adami. In the fall of 2005, Wilke joined The University of Texas at Austin as assistant professor. He is affiliated with the Section of Integrative Biology, the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, and the Institute for Cell and Molecular Biology.
is main research interests are the molecular evolution of protein-coding genes and the evolution of RNA viruses.
