New group members.


We welcome Jesper Kleifert, Vana Paida and Christina Panagaki to the group. Jesper will do resarch training over summer and investigate if overlapping genes are more conserved than non-overlapping genes. Vana is working as a lab assistant, helping out with crosses and monitoring of hybrid fitness in the Leptidea system. Christina will do her Master Thesis project with us for the upcoming year. She will focus on getting robust point mutation rate estimates in butterflies using pedigree data from our painted lady lab population. All very welcome!
