Our Mentors Are Busy Year-round!

Josep Comeron, Associate Professor of Biology, and Ana Llopart, Assistant Professor of Biology, have been researching recombination rates in various species. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded them a four-year, $831,000 grant. The research they are conducting is original in that it investigates molecular causes and evolutionary consequences of variation in recombination rates. Check out the Winter 2014 UI Biology Newsletter (page 4) to read more about their investigation!
