Graduate student Alex Fraik started her 6 month NSF funded internship with Krista Nichols at NOAA. While most of her project will be analyzing existing datasets on fish before and after dam removal, she had a chance to participate in some fieldwork.

NHGRI Comparative Genomics Workshop

Joanna Kelley presented at the NHGRI Comparative Genomics Workshop in Bethesda, MD. It was a fantastic event bringing together ~115 genome biologists from around the country to discuss comparative genomics and the NHGRI strategic plan as it relates to comparative genomics. The schedule of speakers is here: https://www.genome.gov/event-calendar/perspectives-in-comparative-genomics-and-evolution

Long-distance dispersal of ice worms

Our paper on the genetics of glacier ice worms, which shows long-distance dispersal of ice worms is out today! The paper is in  Proceedings of the Royal Society B! Birds eating ice worms may drive passive long-distance dispersal! Below is the first ever photographic proof of it, which postdoc Scott Hotaling took on Monday!

There is also a great write-up in the WSU Insider: https://news.wsu.edu/2019/06/26/unlocking-secrets-ice-worm/
