Friday, Oct 19. Luke Bower will lead this week’s discussion of how adaptive landscapes influence convergent evolution in squirrels. Please join us at O’Bannon’s at 4pm. [Zelditch et al 2017]
… 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.
Journal Club meets every Friday at 4 pm at O’Bannon’s in Northgate to discuss the wonders of science.
… Tentative date for first EEBISO meeting is this Friday, January 19. There are some EEBISO agenda items besides from journal club that we should discuss sooner rather than later — particularly Darwin Day and fundraising/planning for crawfish boil.
Alternate date: Friday, January 26.
