Behind the Science: Male-biased mutation rates in snakes

  About the Author: Drew Schield (@drschield) is an NSF postdoctoral fellow working in Dr. Rebecca Safran’s lab at University of Colorado Boulder. He is interested in how evolutionary processes shape genomic diversity and identifying genomic regions that underly adaptive traits and promote reproductive isolation. His work also focuses on the evolution of sex chromosomes and […]

Behind the Science: Capitalizing on NGS to Investigate Adaptations to Global Change in Pikas

About the Author: Katherine Solari is a Postdoctoral researcher and the Associate Director of Genomics for the Program for Conservation Genomics at Stanford University. Her PhD research with Elizabeth Hadly focused on investigating the mechanisms underlying hypoxia tolerance in pikas (genus Ochotona). Her current work with the Program for Conservation Genomics focuses on developing genomic-based tools […]

EECG Embarkation: More than meets the rattle: What can sensory systems tell us about venom evolution?

**The AGA grants EECG Research Awards each year to graduate 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 three posts over their […]
