Anurag and Jennifer are off for sabbatical for the 2017-18 academic year… but science in the lab continues.  As a wrap-up, here are some news and happenings from the summer months…

Congrats to Jacob and Katie for passing their A-Exams with flying colors (see previous post on their cork-popping performances).

Anurag, Jacob, Katie, Lina, and Patty all attended the Ecological Society of America Annual Meeting in Portland, OR — we all gave research presentations. Nice job everybody!

Congrats to Lina who was awarded a Atkinson Center Biodiversity Grant to support sequencing for her population differentiation study of milkweed weevils.

Congrats to Patty for accepting (and starting!) a faculty position at Bowdoin College.

Congrats to Katie who was awarded an NSF-GRF that will support her next three years in graduate school!

And a belated welcome to Ronald White, a new technician in the lab who is heading up all things related to chemistry and the HPLC.
