My new paper with Michael Shahandeh and Tom Turner at UCSB has been published in Molecular Biology and Evolution. In this paper, we identify two genes associated with differences in pupation behavior between Drosophila melanogaster and D. simulans.
New semester, new lab members!
This semester the Pischedda Lab added 3 new members to our group! Welcome to the team, Holly, Mariel and Olivia!
Also, for anyone wondering how we get such great photos of our lab members, here is our unofficial lab photographer, Ana-Maria, making the magic happen!
