Silverside sampling in the fall
Nina and Maria from the Therkildsen lab and Hannes and Callie from the Baumann lab at UConn went on a joint road trip to sample juvenile Atlantic silversides for our NSF project about the genomic basis of local adaptation. We visited Morehead City NC, Oregon Inlet NC, and Chincoteague Island VA, sampling silversides with a beach seine. The weather was lousy and the work strenuous, but the mood elated, because we got all the fish we needed for subsequent genomic and otolith analyses!
Maria presented a poster at the RECOMB Comparative Genomics Satellite Conference (RECOMB-CG) in Sherbrooke, Quebec with travel support from the Center for Vertebrate Genomics at Cornell.
Former postdoc Dr. Anna Tigano has moved to New Hampshire for a postdoc in the MacManes lab. Congratulations Anna! We will miss you!
