We are thrilled that our review on marine vertebrate genomics is online! The review inspired the cover of this month’s Nature Reviews Genetics. The invited review was a collaboration between Andy Foote, Nina Overgaard Therkildsen, Anthony Brown (PhD student in my laboratory) and me. It went through many iterations before this version. We hadn’t worked together before so it was a lot of fun getting to know each other while crafting the review. I snapped a photo of one of our many skype conversations.
