Josh Zajdel successfully defends his Masters thesis on mating dynamics and population genetics in American alligators!
Findings from Matthew Hale's dissertation work were recently published in Biology of Reproduction, "Embryonic estrogen exposure recapitulates persistent ovarian transcriptional programs in a model of environmental endocrine disruption"
NSF supports project investigating epigenome-by-environment interactions during alligator development!
Funding will support our work on how environmental and endocrine cues are integrated into the epigenome during development. We will be recruiting undergraduate and graduate students, so stay tuned.
