James' interests include horizontal gene transfer (HGT) and its influence on prokaryotic, eukaryotic and mobile genetic element evolution. His research challenges a monophyletic view of the tree of life and examines the role of mergers and acquistions between disparate taxa to shape genomes and drive major evolutionary change.
