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
