KU Center For Genomics Research Symposium

On May 17th, members of the lab participated in the 3rd annual KU Center for Genomics Research Symposium.

Former lab member, Dr. Caroline Kisielinski (top right), presented on her work using sedaDNA to reconstruct the paleo-environment during the Pleistocene to Holocene transition at Bluefish Caves.

Vanna Hay (bottom right) presented her current work attempting to model demographic events in the Aleutian Islands using contemporary whole genome data paired with published ancient DNA data.

Kevin Chovanec (left) has been working to isolate DNA from formalin fixed museum specimens. Here he presented some of this genomic work on the extinct golden toad and two of its endangered relatives. Keven also claimed first place in the UpGoer 5 competition, where our lab group is currently undefeated!
