Check out the article about Guigy and his research in The Buzz!
The Glor lab is hosting this month’s TGIF. Come join us on the patio this Friday 17th May at 4pm for beer and dim sum!
Our senior undergraduate, Ben Desch, will be presenting his Honours thesis “Phylogeography and population structure of the Anolis chlorocyanus species group” this Wednesday at 2:30pm in Hylan 305. Everyone is welcome, so come and support Ben to hear the exciting results from his work in the lab this last year!
From Guiggy: We’re going to change directions a bit and talk about some QTL studies of Heliconius. Baxter, S. W., S. E. Johnston and C. D. Jiggins 2009. Butterfly speciation and the distribution of gene effect sizes fixed during adaptation. Heredity 102(1): 57-65 [doi] Papa, R., D. D. Kapan, B. A. Counterman, K. Maldonado, D. […]
Lab meeting discussions this semester have moved from mice to flycatchers to sticklebacks. Guiggy and I are going to end the semester with a bang with papers on Heliconius butterflies this week and the next. For this week, we’ll be discussing the following two papers: Dasmahapatra KK et al. 2012 Butterfly genome reveals promiscuous exchange of […]
We’re going to be changing it up for this week’s lab meeting. This week, I would like some feedback on a manuscript which is also the last chapter of my thesis (whoop!). It is still a work in progress so while any feedback is welcome, I’d really like suggestions about the direction of the paper.
Our paper reporting new adenovirus strains in collaboration with two veterinarians came out today. Check it out!
For the last lab meeting of the semester, we will have some holiday treats and discuss a recent paper by Pigot & Tobias that explores the processes influencing rates of secondary sympatry.
For this week’s lab meeting, I would like to receive feedback on a manuscript on dewlap color heritability. If we have time, we’ll be following this with lizard poo clean up.
The Undergraduate Program in Biology and Medicine held a poster session last Friday where Ben Desch presented a poster describing the research he did in our lab as a de Kiewiet Summer Research Fellow. Using AFLPs, Ben studied genetic structure of Anolis cristatellus across Puerto Rico. Ben was particularly interested in whether the adaptive dewlap […]
