Pam gives a talk about her work on Drosophila gut symbionts, while Alexa, Matthew, Sandy, and Setong show off their posters on sex comb and chemoreceptor development at the UC-Davis Undergraduate Research Conference. Setong, as always, looks distinguished in a suit and tie.

Here’s a quick reminder of an older lab trip to Freel Peak – at 10881 ft, the highest point in the Tahoe area.
Sarah receives a DDIG for her work on the comparative genetics of sex-specific color patterns in different Drosophila species. This grant will help her test whether similar phenotypes can evolve through changes in different genes.
Gavin receives an NSF pre-doctoral grant for his work on the evolution of doublesex cis-regulatory elements. His work will help us understand the molecular mechanisms responsible for the origin and diversification of new sex-specific traits.
