Foen Peng wins second prize at the EMBO "Mechanisms of speciation" conference in Sweden for his poster on multiple independent loss-of-function mutations in OCIMENE SYNTHASE in Mimulus!

Octavio Campos successfully defended his dissertation. Congratulations, Octavio!

Kelsey Byers's paper showing that OCIMENE SYNTHASE is required for maximum visitation of bumblebees to M. lewisii has been published in The Plant Journal.

Octavio Campos's paper describing improved foraging by hawkmoths on artificial flowers that have curved corollas has been published in Functional Ecology.

Our paper on the regulation of anthocyanin biosynthesis in Mimulus flowers has been published in New Phytologist. We show that mutations in MYB genes are responsible for some flower color variation in natural populations.

Foen Peng was awarded a fellowship by the Organization for Tropical Studies to attend a climate change course in China.

Kelsey Byers successfully defended her PhD dissertation, and has accepted a postdoctoral position as a Plant Fellow at the University of Zurich!

A review of the genetics of plant-pollinator interactions has been published in the August 2013 issue of Current Opinion in Plant Biology. The prominent role of MYB transcription factors in producing floral diversity is highlighted.

Papers describing ROSE INTENSITY1 and GUIDELESS have been published in Genetics. ROI1 is on the cover of the May 2013 issue!

Foen Peng has joined the lab as a new grad student!

Riane Young is awarded a Mary Gates Fellowship!

Kelsey Byers was awarded a National Science Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant!

Yaowu Yuan has joined the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UConn as an Assistant Professor! Janelle Sagawa is working as a technician in the Yuan lab.
