Collaborative work published in PNAS

We are very excited to share our new publication in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, which illuminated molecular evolution of beetles along the Antartic Polar Front.

This proposal represents a collaborative effort with the McKenna lab at the University of Memphis to improve annotation of difficult-to-find genes (e.g., olfactory receptor) in longhorned beetles. Rich will be a visiting scientist at UofM in Summer 2022, and this proposal will fund undergraduate researchers to work on the problem of “fantastic genes and where to find them”.

Exciting things ahead!
