A Gift of Preprints

Just before Christmas we released two preprints with accompanying GitHub repositories. While both are on on oysters, they are different in several ways. Different species, different servers, and different software approaches (R vs IPython). If you need some light reading over this Holiday Season be sure to have a gander at these products. We would love it if you could give us the gift of your comments on anything on the respective hosting sites. Merry Christmas! 1) Heare JE, Blake B, Davis JP, Vadopalas B, Roberts SB. (2014) Evidence of Ostrea lurida (Carpenter 1894) population structure in...

Shotgun Proteomics reveals so much about Ocean Acidification

Not only proteomics, but the integration of lipid profiles, glycogen analysis, shell strength, growth, response to heat, and response to spinning provides tons of new insights into ocean acidification impacts on shellfish. The provisional PDF of “Shotgun proteomics reveals physiological response to ocean acidification in Crassostrea gigas” is now available via BMC Genomics. Background Ocean acidification as a result of increased anthropogenic CO2 emissions is occurring in marine and estuarine environments worldwide. The coastal ocean experiences additional daily and seasonal...

Information for Prospective Graduate Students

Prospective Graduate Students: I appreciate your interest in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences and my research. I am continually looking for highly motivated graduate students with a desire to address fundamental conservation and aquaculture issues using molecular approaches. To get a better idea of the type of research, please have a look at a summary of current projects and our Products page. The basic theme is an application of molecular approaches to gain insight into environmental influence on aquatic organisms. I will commonly accept 1 or 2 students each year dependent on...
