A conference abroad: Global Invertebrates Genomics Alliance (GIGA) V meeting in Cartegena, Colombia

About the author Dylan Comb is a fisheries research associate at Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute (GMGI) where he currently works on a population genetics study on Jonah crab as well as on a project using environmental DNA to assess biodiversity in tandem with traditional state fisheries surveys. His background is in ecology and field biology, […]


AGA Travel Scholarship Award for the fifth Global Invertebrate Genomics Alliance Conference

About the author Emily Giles is a Phd Candidate at the Universidad Astral de Chile. Her work involves evaluating the contributions of evolutionary forces and genetic constraints to genomic divergence during speciation with gene flow. Specifically, she works with species and populations of the genus Scurria, true limpets common to the marine intertidal of the […]


Conference catch-up: Memories of Mexico – Agavoideae Conference and Genotyping By Sequencing Workshop

About the blog author: Dr Christopher (Chris) Irwin Smith is an evolutionary ecologist, a Professor of Biology at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon, and current AGA council member. His research focuses on the pollination biology of yuccas and combines traditional field ecology with molecular genetics and genomics. Chris was a 2022 Fulbright Garcia Robles US […]


Conference catch-up: Online genomics meetings in late 2021 by Biodiversity Genomics and GIGA

About the blog author: Dr. Jose (Joe) Lopez is a molecular biologist, professor at Nova Southeastern University and current AGA council member.  He has published over 80 peer-reviewed papers encompassing the molecular genetics of marine organisms (sponges, corals, bryozoans), gene expression, marine microbiology and metagenomics, symbiosis, molecular evolution and the organization of organismal relationships via systematics/phylogenetics […]


AGA 2022 President’s Introduction and Symposium (coming up!)

    About the Blog Author: Dr. Lila Fishman is a Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Montana-Missoula. Her research focuses on understanding natural plant variation through the lens of evolutionary genetics and genomics, mostly using monkeyflowers as a model system. Follow her research on adaptation, speciation, and selfish evolution (and related activities) via […]


Symposium Snippets: a little insight into my favorite bits of the AGA2021

About the Blog Author: Emily Cavill is a PhD fellow in the Gilbert Research Group at the GLOBE Institute, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Her PhD focuses on hologenomics in the context of applied conservation for the Seychelles Magpie Robins, while her research interests include many topics surrounding conservation of endangered species, mostly genomics but also encompassing […]


Symposium Snippets: Ms. Mason Goes to Snowbird: An Undergraduate’s First Symposium

    About the Blog Author: Noelle Mason is an undergraduate at Colorado State University studying biology and conservation. She works with Dr. Kristen Ruegg’s lab researching relative telomere length in migratory yellow warblers. Noelle can be found on Twitter and Instagram.       The American Genetics Association President’s Symposium this year focused on Conservation […]


A ‘Cen-sational’ Post

  About the Blog Author: Stacy Krueger-Hadfield is an assistant professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Her lab investigates the evolutionary ecology of sex. Lab members can be found in the sea, in streams, or in the snow. When she’s not out in the field or pinning algae […]
