We attended the 11th Annual Arthropod Genomics Symposium held at The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We had many interesting presentations in a very interactive atmosphere. Courtney, Kevin, Nelchi, Kangxu, and Maddy presented their research.
And, yes, Yoshi really used the HotWheel scooter at the conference (because of the torn calf muscles)…
Maddy, Jake, and Sean presented their projects at the 2018 Undergraduate Research Forum!
And here are the pictures of Grad student mentor/undergrad researcher duos!
Yoshi attended the 1st AsiaEvo conference that was held in Shenzhen, China. This was the first Asia-wide evolutionary biology conference. The conference was amazing; close to 1,000 attendees and many interesting presentations. Yoshi gave a talk in the session “The developmental origin of novel complex traits”.
We also had a tour to the China National GeneBank, which was an amazing facility!
