NSF-ROA funded!

We have some exciting news: our collaborative NSF-ROA proposal “Leveraging genomes, transcriptomes, and proteomes alongside student training to improve genome annotation” has been accepted for funding!

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!
