The Miller and Fay labs meet weekly to review research and papers. Discussion lead switches between labs each week.
One of the many joys of doing a sabbatical at the Center for Genome Sciences and Systems Biology at Wash U has been the opportunity to hold joint lab meetings with our lab and my lab home during sabbatical, Justin Fay's lab. Among other things, the Fay lab tests aspects of population genetic and evolutionary theory using laboratory and genomic analyses of the model organism Saccharomyces spp.. Learning more about ongoing work in the Fay Lab has been really valuable to our lab group, as we transition from population genetics to population genomics. In addition, it has been been terrific to get feedback from the Fay Lab on our grant proposals, developing projects, and treatment of genotyping-by-sequencing and RNA-seq data. Thanks to the CGS and the Fay lab for the warm welcome and great discussions!
