Lab meeting 4th March 10am B52

Dear everyone,

Our next molecular ecology lab meeting will be on Tuesday 4th March at 10am in room B52. Our two speakers will be:

Anja Westram. Genomic signatures of adaptive divergence in Littorina snails
Nyil Khwaja. Wrens with benefits: inclusive fitness and kin recognition in the rifleman

Available dates for giving a talk are the following:
April 1st
May 6th
June 3rd
August 5th
September 2nd

I especially encourage people who have never given a talk at one of these meetings to present their work, even if you feel it is not yet finished. These meetings are a great opportunity not only to let people know what you are working on, but also to get valuable feedback about your project. You can also use these meetings as a rehearsal for talks that you will present somewhere else (conferences, symposia, VIVA, applications, etc.).

Finally, please let me know ( if there are new people that need to be added to this list.

All the best,

Mauricio Montaño-Rendón
