This week we have a visitor. Christoph Eschenbrenner from Eva Stukenbrock's lab at the University of Kiel joined us to learn about PacBio for a joint project on fungal genome assembly.
Simone will participate this summer in the La Guarda Evolutionary Biology workshop. The students will spend a week in a picturesque mountain village in the Grisons and elaborate a research project. With the help of faculty members, the students thoroughly discuss their research plan and finally defend it in a plenary.
This year's faculty includes Hopi Hoekstra, Spencer Barrett, Sebastian Bonhoeffer and Dieter Ebert (the organizer). The first La Guarda workshop was organized by John Maynard Smith, George Williams and Stephen C. Stearns.
The application for this year's workshop has passed, but keep an eye out for next year.
