EECG Epilogue: Species differences in hormonally mediated gene expression underlie the evolutionary loss of sexually dimorphic coloration in Sceloporus lizards

About the Author Chris Robinson (he/him) is a PhD candidate in Bob Cox’s lab at the University of Virginia. His interests lay in how hormones contribute to phenotypic development and the evolution of hormone-genome interactions. His work uses hormonal manipulations, transcriptomics, and cellular imaging to understand how traits are gained and lost among closely related […]
