Defense: New tools for localizing ancestry across genomes of hybrids provide insight into the genetics of speciation

Nathan Schaefer
PhD Candidate (Advisor: Ed Green)

Abstract:  Understanding the processes by which new species arise has long been of interest to evolutionary geneticists. In some cases, abrupt changes in habitat or niche can spur on a suite of adaptive changes in one population that help lead to its genetic isolation from others. In cases... Read More

Research Scientist

Abstract: Single cell technologies have allowed us to visualize the complexity of transcriptional states of a cell in a given tissue. Despite available information that normal stem cells and tumor-initiating cells are heterogeneous, the effect of this transcriptional heterogeneity on functional... Read More
