Yuan Zhu joins the lab
Yuan Zhu, a second year graduate student from Genetics, is done with her rotations and has decided to join our lab. In her rotation project she studied evoltuion of prokaryotic genome size. It is not yet clear what she will focus on in her dissertation - she is broadly interested in the theoretical and experimental aspects of genome evolution, evolution of complex traits, and population genetics. She is hoping to combine experimental and theoretical/computation work in her thesis. We are all delighted with her choice!
