We are currently seeking a post-doctoral scientist to join our research group where they will help lead efforts focusing on the impact of environmental change on DNA methylation in marine invertebrates. One of the primary projects is an effort examining
While we can certainly improve on our efforts to make our work open and reproducible, we have published a series of products over the last few years that have had associated code/data repositories that have accompanied the narratives (aka manuscripts).
Tune in Wednesday at 1pm (or later) to see Mackenzie defend her thesis entitled “Epigenetic regulation of environmental response in the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas.” More information available at eagle.fish.washington.edu/mac
With our lab’s focus on the physiological response of marine organisms to environmental change we have considerable interest in how changes in ocean chemistry impacts biology. Our efforts on this front can be categorized into 1) the organismal response to
Aquaculture of native shellfish can impact nearby ecological systems and wild conspecifics by creating opportunities for genetic impacts on native populations. If wild populations are genetically adapted to local environmental conditions, interbreeding with cultured conspecifics from other locales may disrupt
