We welcome Ashley Chin-Baarstad as a postdoc in the lab. Ashley comes to us from Purdue University, where her PhD used comparative genomic techniques to explore population structure and the genetic associations of traits (both behavioral and life history) in salmonids. Here she will tackle the genomics of sex chromosome evolution in cichlids.
Mandy, Emily, Kaitlyn, and Reade traveled to Graz, Austria to present research at the 2015 Cichlid Science meeting. It was a great time meeting European colleagues, having great scientific discussions, and sampling the local schnapps!
