Evolutionary Genomics of Sex

Invited talks

Wen-Juan gives KU Center for genomics Early Career Researcher Seminar

This Friday, Wen-Juan will give a talk entitled "The evolutionary consequences and genetic mechanism of sex-ratio meiotic drive in
Drosophila affinis" at 4pm in the Commons at Spooner Hall.

Wen-Juan has been greatly enjoying her time at the
Rob Unckless lab, at @KUMolBio @KU_EEB @GenomicsKU! She is glad to know and learn a ton from so many colleagues and friends here 😃

She and her family would love to say goodbye & thank you all in person 🙏

Come and have a farewell drink with us 🍷🍺

Departmental seminar at School of Biological Sciences at University of Aberdeen

I was lucky to be invited for a job interview for an Independent Research Fellow (tenure-track position).  This was a great experience, had fun talking to various faculty members, graduates and postdocs at School of Biological Sciences.

Excited to give a seminar on frog sex chromosome evolution at Department of Genetics and Ecology Evolution, Université Paris-Sud

Thanks so much for the opportunity! Thanks for the hosting by Tatiana Giraud and the whole team members. I am every excited to share and discuss my work on evolution of frog homomorphic sex chromosomes and sex-biased gene expression, at Seminaires IDEEV, department of Genetics and Ecology Evolution, Université Pairs-Sud. Thanks for the great discussions. Photo credit: Jade Bruxaux.
