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 […]
