Postdoc Scott Hotaling received a grant from the Antarctic Bursary! Congratulations Scott! The funding from the Antarctic Bursary ( will allow us to extend our “genomic natural history” data collection for polar eelpouts! New data from four eelpout genomes, including Arctic species, will provide an important comparison to our developing Antarctic eelpout genomic resources. This funding is also going to provide the necessary resources to improve our existing genome assembly of the Antarctic eelpout, Lycodicthys dearborni.
