On a recent trip to Oklahoma, we got lucky and found some really cool reptiles and amphibians. Some were in the field, others were in Dr. Ron Bonett’s lab at the University of Tulsa.
In December 2018, I was invited to teach at a workshop in Canberra, Australia on bioinformatics, population genomics and phylogenetics with SNP data. There was a really terrific group of instructors and students.
“Have you got large SNP datasets and now are wondering how best to filter the data, to infer population diversity or structure, adaptation, or to delimit species and estimate their relationships? Do you have a bioinformatics or analytical pipeline that you would like to see used by empiricists?“
A group of grads and postdocs from the University of Canberra was kind enough to let me tag along on their road trip up to Queensland for the annual Australian Society of Herpetologists annual meeting. We found lots of amazing reptiles and amphibians along the way.
