2016 Ecological, Evolutionary and Conservation Genomics (EECG) Awards

The AGA is proud to announce the recipients of the 2016 Ecological, Evolutionary and Conservation Genomics (EECG) Awards, an annual research grant for student or postdoctoral research. We were again fortunate to have a large pool of excellent applications (70 in total) spanning genomics questions and approaches, as well as the world! We thank all of the applicants and congratulate the seven awardees on their fine proposals.

Frances Clark (University of Maryland) -- The Genome-wide Transcriptional Effect of B Chromosomes in Lake Malawi Cichlids

Isobel Ronai (University of Sydney) -- Anarchy in the honey bee colony: the genetic basis of worker sterility in the honey bee

Christopher Cunningham (University of Georgia) -- Gene expression and its regulation during context-specific social behavior

Ellie Armstrong (University of Hawaii Hilo) -- Ecological speciation and genome evolution in the Hawaiian picture-wing Drosophila

AGA Member Benefits

Watch for an announcement about changes to AGA membership

We are moving to direct member management  through the AGA website, instead of by Journal of Heredity’s publisher, Oxford University Press.  Going forward, we hope to be able to offer a much more interactive platform and faster, more personal communication with our members.

Information on how to become a member for 2020 will be available in early November.
