PhD research published

BBSRC-funded PhD student Paul Richards published one of the chapters from his thesis in Evolution Letters. It is a pleasure to get this paper out and is research that we really enjoyed, involving several field trips to Japan, genomic work using RAD-seq and bioinformatics.

You can read the full paper here, an interview that I did with Evolution Letters and also a report in the Daily Mail, of all places. Surely there's a better way...

The "money shot" is here.

The research was also funded by the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science, the Genetics Society, and the Daiwa Foundation, and involved a two month stay for Paul in Japan, mainly based in Sendai with collaborator Professor Satoshi Chiba.
