ontributed to the development of many genetic and genomic tools that have established Tribolium as a genetic model organism. These include molecular recombination maps, DNA libraries and other molecular resources, RNAi, and the use of transposons in genome-wide insertional mutagenesis. Brown played a lead role in the international consortium that sequenced and analyzed the genome of Tribolium, providing the first look at a beetle genome. She is director of the Arthropod Genomic Center, which hosts an annual symposium highlighting recent advancements in this field. She is also director of the K-State Bioinformatics Center, and she serves on the editorial board of BMC Genomics. These centers host Agripestbase, which is being developed to provide community access to genomic information for pest insects, including the Hessian fly (Mayetiola destructor) and the tobacco hornworm (Manduca sexta), as well as Tribolium. Brown pioneered the first concurrent B.S./M.S. degree at K-State, where she teaches classes in genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics.

Dr. James Carey is considered the world's foremost authority on arthropod demography, having published over 200 scientific papers and three books on this or closely-related topics, including the monograph Longevity (Princeton, 2003) and the "go-to" book on insect demography, Demography for Biologists with Special Emphasis on Insects (Oxford, 1993). His landmark paper on "slowing of mortality at older ages," published in Science in 1992 and cited more than 350 times, keys in on his seminal discovery that mortality slows at advanced ages. The UC Davis College of Agriculture and Environmental Science cited this as one of "100 Ways in Which Our College Has Shaped the World." Dr. Carey is also considered one of the world's authorities on the demography and invasion biology of tephritid fruit flies, particularly the Mediterranean fruit fly. He published one of the first papers on the formal demography of any
