Goodbye EL Konigsburg

ElKonigsbergElKonigsberg2ElKonigsberg4ElKonigsberg3Sad to hear that EL Konigsburg died a few days ago.  She was one of my favorite authors when I was a kid.  Here is a note I kept from her that she wrote (when I was very young) after I had written her a letter about loving her books …ElKonigsburg

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
