Our lab was featured on MSU Today for our new grant studying the evolution of gene-environment interactions.
The lab is growing! Welcome to new postdoc Rebecca Panko, bioinformatician Adrian Platts, as well as rotation students Asia Hightower, Sophie Buysse, and Miles Roberts
Some new work from the lab is out on biorxiv. First, Jennifer Blanc’s cool paper investigating local adaptation in maize gene expression. Second, collaborative work with Li Wang and Matt Hufford investigating parallel adaptation in highland maize
Congrats to Josephs lab collaborator Jennifer Blanc for winning the award for best student poster at Midwest Population Genetics 2019!!
The Josephs lab is hiring a postdoc for a funded project studying TE polymorphism effects on traits in maize. More info here.
A few of Emily’s recent talks are now on the internet! You can watch a 5 minute lighting talk from the Green Life Science Symposium at the University of Michigan here and a 20 minute talk at the SMBE satellite meeting on polygenic adaptation in Vienna here.
The Josephs Lab is open at MSU and now features both walls and furniture!
The Josephs Lab website is live! The physical lab is in progress.
