No journal club this week. Spring Break.
Milton Torres-Ceron will present a paper on disturbance ecology in the Anthropocene. See you at 4 pm in Butler 202. [Newman 2019]
. . . Friday, February 7. This week, Alyson Brokaw will be presenting a paper on flaws with the fundamental niche concept! There are still plenty of spaces for people to present papers in the coming weeks, so please sign up. We’ll be on hiatus for Darwin Day next week but will resume on Feb. 21. See you in Butler 202 at 4pm! [Angiletta et al 2019]
. . . Friday, January 24. By an anonymous vote, we’ll be having the EEB journal club on campus this semester and roll on to Happy Hour at a bar of our choice afterwards. Hopefully, this will make it more accessible to those who have other commitments after or before. Due to the difficulty of getting a room, we’ve chosen to have it in Butler 202 at 4pm on Fridays. All grad students, post docs and professors are encouraged to attend when they can.
To start, this Friday (Jan. 24) I’ll be presenting this paper on the genomics of ancient Rome. This paper came out late last year and is a really nice example of what we can do with high coverage, high throughput genomic sequencing. [Ancient genetics of Rome]
If you’d like to present a paper on whatever makes you excited to be doing science, here’s a link to the spreadsheet with the dates we’ll be meeting.
If you’d like to do something off the classic papers spreadsheet Zach mentioned, see this link. Any professors reading this, feel free to add more to this spreadsheet, especially ecology & behavior.
