A recent feature in Science focuses on genomic islands and our work with stick insects features prominently. Find the article HERE.
The theoretical modeling paper with Sam Flaxman as lead author is published now in Molecular Ecology, and was covered in a ‘News and Views’ perspective. The paper and perspective can be found here: PDF News and Views
Congratulations to Tim who receive a postdoc offer with Mark Urban, and Rudy, who landed a lectureship position at RHUL.
Meanwhile, independent from these two leaving the lab at the end of the year, there are currently two funded postdoc positions available in the lab, to work on the genomics of speciation. For the job advert click HERE.
Moe’s paper on stages of adaptive radiation in cichlids (or lack thereof) is accepted for publication in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London B. Congratulations to Moe.
The paper is officially out in Science and we got the cover photo! Congratulations to all those involved. You can get the paper HERE.
Special congratulations to the first author Victor, a happy scientist below…
Emma Curran, who is doing a fourth year project in the lab, was recently awarded a highly competitive NERC studenship. She will commence a PhD with Nicola Nadeau on the evolution of colouration in Heliconius butterflies.
Victor ran an intensive hands-on workshop on genomic analysis for Anamaria, Kei, and Moritz. Anamaria is assembling her own genomic data from mussels, conducting variant calling, etc. Great progress.
The holiday season is over and field season is approaching. Lot’s going on. The paper in Ecology Letters is official published, including a Timema featured on the cover (nice photo Aaron). Anamaria received an ESF travel grant to link the mussel work on wild populations to aquaculture. Nice work Anamaria. Kei arrived from Japan and is settling in quickly. Everyone is busy writing papers…
The other ‘big’ paper, describing genome wide allele frequency changes upon experimental transplantation to new environments, is ‘in press’ at Ecology Letters. Finally. The online early preprint can be found HERE
The ‘big’ paper on eco-evolutionary dynamics is published. Find the article HERE and coverage in Current Biology via a dispatch article HERE. Media and related coverage can be obtained by clicking HERE for National Geographic and HERE for Current Biology
Congratulations to Tim for his paper coming out in Current Biology and to Rudy and Aaron who have papers recently accepted in Ecology Letters and the American Naturalist, respectively.
