Matthew Yates

Postdoctoral fellow | Postdoctorant.e
Organism abundance is a critical parameter in ecology, but its estimation is often challenging. Approaches utilizing eDNA to indirectly estimate abundance have recently generated substantial interest. However, preliminary correlations observed between eDNA concentration and abundance... Read More →

Charles Xu

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
With rapidly growing accessibility of genome-editing technologies such as CRISPR-Cas9, the prevalence and diversity of genetically modified (GM) animals is expected to increase dramatically. Plans to release such GM animals into the wild have already been implemented around the world... Read More →

Brent Brookes

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Understanding the drivers of successful species invasions is important for conserving native biodiversity and for mitigating the economic impacts of introduced species. However , whole genome resolution investigations of the underlying contributions of neutral and adaptive genetic... Read More →
