Congratulations to Georgina, who has had her paper on context-dependent decision making in Nasonia accepted by Behavioural Processes. Nice one!
and the BMC Genomics paper is now out! Go here for open access: Pannebakker et al. (2020) BMC Genomics
In more lab news, ex-Shuker lab alumna Nicki Cook and Dave himself have just had a paper accepted in BMC Genomics, led by our dear friend and another lab alumnus, Bart Pannebakker. The paper describes the genomic basis of sex ratio variation in Nasonia vitripennis, with a preliminary GWAS analysis. Thanks to all the co-authors for their work on this!
We are back in the lab, albeit socially-distanced, and wearing masks! What a relief!
Maddy Abbs has started her ASAB-funded undergrad research project, and Ellie is starting up her next experiments. It is WONDERFUL having folks in the lab again.
Great news to start the year – Vicki’s latest paper “Mating failure shapes the patterns of sperm precedence in an insect” has just been accepted for publication in Behavioural Ecology & Sociobiology. Dani is also an author, so congratulations us on a fab team effort.
Ellie has been awarded a Unilever Research prize, awarded to the best Dutch Masters students each year – congratulations Ellie! What a fabulous way to start your PhD!
Congratulations to Ceile, Joe and Melissa, who have successfully passed their MSc(Res) thesis examinations, with at most only minor corrections! Nice one! Very proud of all your hard work and look forward to getting the publications out there.
