EEB hires two new faculty members


The EEB group is excited to announce the addition of two new faculty members in the near future.  Dr. Christian Rabeling uses molecular phylogenetics to study the evolutionary biology of social ants, with a focus on reproductive strategies, social parasitism, and speciation.  And Dr. Amanda Larracuente uses genomics, genetics and cytology to study the evolution of selfish DNA in Drosophila, with a focus on sex chromosomes, meiotic drive elements, and satellite DNAs.  Dr. Rabeling’s lab will open for business in July 2014, and Dr. Larracuente’s will open in January 2015.
