Kangxu has completed his two-year training in my lab under the support of China Scholarship Council and is going back to China today. Two years went by too quickly… It was so much fun working with you! Let’s keep in touch and continue working together!
Our research on the evolution of insect wings was featured in Miami News!
Tomoyasu’s research helps solve the centuries-old mystery of the origin of insect wings
And here is the second article, more about our lab.
Yoshi Tomoyasu’s evo-devo lab: Behind the scenes
Thanks, Susan Meikle (University News and Communications), for the great articles!
One last lab gathering to give a proper send-off to Courtney. Best of luck on your new adventure!
Our lab visited two science classes at Talawanda high school. We discussed our research findings on insect wings, as well as how we study evolution from the evo-devo point of view. We had so much fun interacting with motivated high school students! Many thanks, Ms. Raynord and Mr. Yuva, for inviting us!!
Dr. Marc Halfon at University at Buffalo, The State University of New York visited Miami and gave the departmental seminar “Repeal, replace, and redeploy: evolution of a conserved gene regulatory network in the mosquito Aedes aegypti“.
We had a lot of good discussions about how to improve our enhancer prediction methods. Thanks, Marc for a very intriguing seminar!
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!
End-of-the-semester lab gathering!
