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 2019, meetings are every Friday from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM in 409 Borlaug Hall.
For a list of classic papers, see our Reading the Classics page.
