Today at #UCDavis: Outi Savolainen on “Examining genetics of local adaptation in the perennial outcrossing Arabidopsis lyrata”

Via Sebastien Schreiber

Dear Colleagues,

I hope your Spring quarter has started on a good note. The first Ecology and Evolution seminar will be given by Outi Savolainen from the University of Oulu in Finland. Outi works on the genetics of adaptation and speciation. Her group uses genomic tools to examine the genetic basis underlying genetic variation in adaptive traits, such as timing of growth in Scots pine and the timing of flowering in Arabidopsis lyrata (see https://wiki.oulu.fi/display/PGG/Outi+Savolainen).

The title, time and place for her talk is as follows:

Title: Examining genetics of local adaptation in the perennial outcrossing Arabidopsis lyrata

Date: Thursday April 7 at 4:10pm

Place: 1100 Social Sciences

About Jonathan Eisen

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
