Next lab meeting: 7 Oct 2014, 11:30 am, Common Room

Dear all,

The next Molecular Ecology Lab meeting will be on 7 Oct 2014 at 11:30 am in the Common Room (D floor, APS department). The two speakers will be Kyle Martin and Kei Matsubayashi.

Kyle is a research associate in Gareth Fraser’s group working on tooth and denticle development in sharks, skates and rays using development methods. His talk title is “Evolution and Development of Vertebrate Teeth: the role of stem cells in regulating continuous tooth regeneration in chondrichthyans”.

Kei is a JSPS post-doctoral fellow for Research Abroad in Patrik Nosil’s group studying the ecological and genetic mechanisms of diversification, focusing on ecological speciation and adaptive radiation. His talk title is “Parallel speciation caused by ecological hybrid speciation in the phytophagous ladybird beetle”.

I am afraid that November and December meetings are fully booked, but should you wish to give a talk at one of these meetings, the following dates are available:
– January 6th
– February 3rd
– March 3rd

January 6th might be of special interest to those presenting at the Population Genetics Group (PopGroup) since you could use this lab meeting to practice your talk.

As always, please do let me know of new members in your groups who need to be added to this list.

Best wishes,
