A new postdoctoral researcher recently joined the lab. Dr. Andreas Chavez is a recent graduate from UW Biology. He is a mammalogist who specializes in phylogenetics, phylogeography, and hybrid zones. Andreas will only be with us until Summer, and then he’s moving to UC Berkeley to start work on a new postdoctoral research position at the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology. While he’s still here, Andreas is going to learn how to work with next-generation sequence data, including library preparation for RADseq and sequence capture approaches, data management, bioinformatics, and also phylogenetic analysis. Welcome to the lab!
