Genomics

March 8-12: Drosophila 2015

Craig presents his work on the genomics of parthenogenesis at the annual Drosophila genetics conference in Chicago. In collaboration with Danny Miller (Hawley Lab; Stowers Institute), Craig has been working on constructing the first draft genome assembly of D. mercatorum, a facultative parthenogenetic species, in order understand the genomic mechanisms underlying parthenogenesis.
