Our weekly meetings involve discussion of papers related to population or quantitative genetics, molecular evolution, plant evolution, DNA sequencing, and computational biology. Everyone is welcome to attend; you’ll even get a chance to lead the discussion. Participants in our lab meeting are also tracking relevant journals that cover genetics, genomics and evolutionary biology. You can see their latest article picks in this GitHub repository.
During spring 2018, meetings are Thursdays at 4:00 PM. Weather permitting, we meet on the patio of Borlaug Hall (on the St. Paul campus). In inclement weather, we meet in 409 Borlaug Hall.
Joint meetings with the Brandvain/ Moeller/ McGaugh/ Tiffin lab groups are scheduled for roughly one per month in 371 Bioscience (also on the St. Paul campus). Also check out UMNEvolTwin for interaction with evolutionary biologists on campus.
Additionally, non-PI members from any lab are invited to come to the Population Genetics Discussion group, which meets every other week on Wednesday mornings. For an exact schedule and list of discussion materials, visit their Github page.
