"Congratulations to Anna Maria Langmüller (Schlötterer group) on her successful PhD defense: The detection of temperature-dependent fitness effects with Evolve and Resequence experiments"
- After the pandemic forced us to skip last year's institute retreat, we decided to travel to the huts at Feuerkogel this year to engage in small group workshops, a bit of hiking (despite very uninviting weather) and comforting mountain dinners at 1600m elevation. It was great to catch up on research and friendships after the long break!
- Our winter term webinars resume. Details and registration here: https://www.popgen-vienna.at/news/seminars/
- Congratulations to Anna Maria Langmüller (Schlötterer group) on her PhD zoom defense entitled "The detection of temperature-dependent fitness effects with Evolve and Resequence experiments". We wish Anna all the best for her new adventures as a postdoc at Cornell Univ. (US)
- Preprint by Kofler, Nolte and Schlötterer: The transposition rate has little influence on equilibrium copy numbers of the P-element.
- We enjoyed a hike among the "Vienna Woods" with wonderful weather. After a long time with no social activities due to the pandemic, it was a special treat to spend time together! Dr. Sam Yeaman (Univ. of Calgary, currently on sabbatical) joined us and it was great to discuss latest research in person instead of zoom.
- Preprint by Wierzbicki, Kofler and Signor: Evolutionary dynamics of piRNA clusters in Drosophila.
- PhD students Dagny Runarsdottir and Lara Radovic reach out to young researchers at Children's University to explain how populations evolve.
- Congratulations to alumna Ana Marija Jaksic for having been selected as a runner-up for the prestigious best student paper award for papers published in MBE during 2020 with the paper Neuronal Function and Dopamine Signaling Evolve at High Temperature in Drosophila.
- Early online in Genome Biol Evol by Langmüller, Dolezal and Schlötterer: Fine mapping without phenotyping: Identification of selection targets in secondary Evolve and Resequence experiments.
- Paper just out in Genome Biol by Otte, Nolte, Mallard and Schlötterer: The genetic architecture of temperature adaptation is shaped by population ancestry and not by selection regime.
