Christopher Jones is a molecular geneticist interested in understanding the molecular underpinnings of behavior, particularly learning and memory.
At Moravian, he has developed and taught a range of courses both in and out of his department. As a member of GCAT (the Genome Consortium for Active Teaching) he has brought advanced techniques such as DNA microarray analysis into Moravian's undergraduate curriculum. One of the inaugural members of the GEP (Genomics Education Partnership), his genomics course allows students to assemble and annotate genomic data generated by Washington University's Genome Sequencing Center, participating directly in the generation of new knowledge to benefit the larger scientific community.
