Por, Lani, and Reggie attended the Southern California Evolutionary Genetics & Genomics (SCalE) meeting at UCLA on November 15th. Por gave a talk about the differential gene regulation underlying population specific responses to acute heat stress in Tigriopus and Lani presented a poster on her ongoing ddRAD analysis with C. funebralis.
Congratulations to Elise for successfully defending her MS thesis on the molecular identification of fish eggs off the SIO pier.
Elise is pictured here with her celebratory sanddab cake. The sanddab, (C. stigmaeus), was the most common fish identified in her research.
Two successful M.S. degree defenses this month! Congratulations to Amanda Barker and Brittany Idrizaj!
Mado Krick joins the lab as a visiting M.S. student from the University of Konstanz, Germany.
Lori Luers finishes her B.S. at UCSD and begins her M.S. work on Tigriopus.
Maggie successfully defends her master's thesis on thermal tolerance in interpopulation hybrids of Tigriopus californicus.
In January she'll be heading to Germany to start her Ph.D in Axel Meyer's lab at the University of Konstanz. Good luck Maggie!
We had lots of fun at the annual Scripps Holiday Party held at the Birch Aquarium!
Working with SIO researcher Brad Erisman, Alice extends the fish egg identification project to Cabo Pulmo, Baja California Sur.
Manoela Brandão (from Brazil) joins the lab as a visiting doctoral student. Manoela will use DNA barcoding to identify crab larvae in samples from the Brazilian coast.
