… Friday, Oct 5. Zach Hancock will lead a discussion on codon biases and their evolutionary implications. Please join us at O’Bannon’s at 4pm. [Galtier et al 2018]
… Friday, Sept 7. This Friday at 4 pm we will meet at O’Bannon’s on Northgate to host our first journal club of the semester. At BEER (behavior, ecology, and evolution reading), students and faculty affiliated with the EEB program come together to review papers in the field of EEB. This is a great opportunity to interact with other members of the program and learn about cool science in fields that may or may not be related to your own.
This week Stephen Bovio will lead the first discussion. I chose this paper because identifying adaptations with genomic approaches is cool. Also, it’s a relatively short and easy read to get us started. [Sharma et al 2018]
From here on out we will communicate EEB journal club related information via the EEBISO listserv. If you are not a part of this listserv, you can register for it on https://listserv.tamu.edu/ by searching for EEBISO.
Gaston Jofre will be leading the discussion about the origin of tetrapods. See you this Friday at O’Bannon’s at 4pm. [Origin of tetrapods]
Across the Tree of Life: Interactions in Ecology and Evolution
The 2018 Ecological Integration Symposium Committee invites you to attend the 19th Annual Texas A&M University Ecological Integration Symposium on April 5th and 6th at Rudder Tower and Theater at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.
The Ecological Integration Symposium is an interdisciplinary, graduate student-organized and led event that unites students and renowned researchers in the themes of ecology, conservation, evolutionary biology, geography, and more.
During this FREE, two-day event we will explore ecology through the theme of Across the Tree of Life: Interactions in Ecology and Evolution. This year, plenary speaker and student presentations will be spread across both days. The symposium will close with a speaker panel and awards presentation on Friday afternoon.
We are excited to announce our 2018 plenary speakers are Dr. Caren Cooper, North Carolina State University; Dr. Tim Coulson, University of Oxford; Dr. Gretchen Hofmann, University of California, Santa Barbara; Dr. Israel del Toro, Lawrence University; Dr. Rana El-Sabaawi, University of Victoria.
