Experimental evolution here we go!

The future is in our hands!

Today we started the very FIRST yeast colonies at the Botero Lab that will kick off a long-term collaborative effort on experimental evolution with our friends at the Fay Lab. What an exciting time for us... the many challenges ahead are dwarfed by the endless possibilities and the amazing potential we see in this experimental system. We've been working very hard behind the scenes to hit the ground running... stay tuned to see the fruits of this exciting new research direction through which we aim to combine the power of theory and experiments to learn more about our world.
