Dr. Wilkins is a postdoctoral research fellow of the Swiss National Science Foundation, with Stephanie Carlson (UC Berkeley) and Jonathan Eisen (UC Davis). She is interested in the interactions between developing embryos and their associated microbes. In particular, she is investigating non-genetic paternal effects on early salmonid development and their host-associated bacterial communities.

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
