graduate students and postdocs:
studied C. elegans sperm-related evolution in her MSc
thesis. She is now pursuing a
PhD at the University of Sterling with Luc Bussiere.
studied the genetics of reproductive isolation between Caenorhabditis
species in her MSc thesis. She is now a high
school science teacher.
the evolution of sex-biased genes in Caenorhabditis in
her MSc thesis, using next-gen
transcriptome sequencing. She is now working
as a bioinformatician at SickKids Hospital.
studied the genetics of fecundity variation in C. briggsae in his MSc
thesis. He is now a high school science teacher.
PhD thesis investigated the
molecular population genetics and species divergence of obligatorily
She is now a postdoc with Amro Zayed at York University.
bioinformatics MSc thesis quantified differential expression of the C.
briggsae transcriptome as a function of genotype and environmental
rearing temperature. She is now in a bioinformatics internship at the
Ontario Brain Institute.
Greg's PhD thesis investigated the genetics of temperature-dependent nematode behavior,
primarily in C. briggsae. Greg was co-advised by Will Ryu (Physics).
Joanna's PhD thesis investigated the genetics of reproductive isolation in Caenorhabditis.
She is now a postdoc with Scott Rifkin at UCSD.
Janice's PhD thesis investigated gametic reproductive isolation in Caenorhabditis.
studied population genomics and genome evolution.
studied speciation and trait mapping.
studied molecular population genetics and genome evolution.
amazing former undergraduates, techs and visiting scientists!
