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 […]


EECG Embarkation: Mix ingredients, bake for a few million years: an evo-devo recipe for studying phenotypic evolution

About the blog author  Dr Luca Livraghi is an evolutionary-developmental biologist and Post-Doc at George Washington University in Washington DC. His work focuses on investigating genotype-phenotype relationships through butterfly wing patterns. He is a terrible cook. Follow Luca on twitter @LivraghiLuca  Culinary inspiration:  You are hiking through your favorite alpine trail, enjoying the breathtaking views. […]


EECG Embarkation: Experiences in early life influence development of future phenotypes

**The AGA grants EECG Research Awards each year to graduate students and post-doctoral researchers who are at a critical point in their research, where additional funds would allow them to conclude their research project and prepare it for publication. EECG awardees also get the opportunity to hone their science communication and write posts over their […]
