We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to work on genetic and functional analysis of young testis-specific de novo genes in D. melanogaster.
We (Dave, Didem) attended the Drosophila meeting in San Diego. Great meeting, as always.
Li and Nico have departed for Dave’s hometown to start jobs at Rockefeller University. We sure will miss them.
Didem will attend the Evolution meeting (Austin, TX) and will give a talk at the Development 2 session on Saturday (06/18/2016) at 10:30 am.
Welcome to Rebekah Frampton, a visiting scholar from University of Otago (New Zealand), who will stay in the Begun lab for a month.
Nico’s paper about latitudinal cline associated with UVB-mediated DNA damage response is out in PLOS Genetics!
Alisa’s paper about clinal variation in D. simulans is out in Genetics!
Check out our new paper with Dan and Matt on parallel evolution of copy-number variation in MBE.
A big welcome to Didem Sarikaya, who has just joined us as a new postdoc from Cassandra Extavour’s lab!
Hayley Sheehy joins us as our new lab manager. Welcome, Hayley!
Li’s paper on parallel gene expression differentiation in D. melanogaster and D. simulans was published in PLOS Genetics, click here for the details.
