Ants, Bees, Genomes & Evolution @ Queen Mary University London
New publications & New job
New year, new country, new job: I am now a Lecturer at Queen Mary University of London. I will continue to use genomics and bioinformatics approaches to examine the interplay between social evolution and genome evolution. Get in touch if you’re interested in working with me in a great place.
And a few nice papers on which I am coauthor are now out.
PNAS: Relaxed selection is a precursor to the evolution of phenotypic plasticity. Led by Brendan Hunt at Georgia Tech
Bioinformatics: Visualization and quality assessment of de novo genome assemblies - led by Oksana Riba-Grognuz - Source code available.
Trends in Genetics: The genomic impact of 100 million years of social evolution in seven ant species. Reviews some of the findings from the ant genome projects & lays the foundation for coming analyses. Romain Libbrecht & I made the photo that was selected as cover image!
