Our new manuscript describing the recent evolutionary history of three species of predatory coccinellids used in biological control (Hippodamia convergens, Coccinella septempunctata, Harmonia axyridis) across North American populations has now been accepted to Insect Science! Watch this space for links to the full manuscript in the coming weeks!
Melissa was recently selected among a diverse group of 120 applicants to attend the EMBO's Population Genomics workshop in Napoli, Italy. Congrats to Melissa, and we hope that this will be an excellent opportunity for her as she forays into graduate studies in the Sethuraman Lab! More information about the workshop can be accessed here.
This edition of Tukwut Talks at CSUSM's Cross-cultural Center will feature Dr. Sethuraman and his journey from Madras to San Marcos as a scientist of color. Do stop by if you wish to learn more about our lab's research, and journey.
Dr. Sethruaman's work was recently featured by CSUSM's News Center - read more about our work, and future prospects here.
The Sethuraman Lab had a wonderful time presenting and making connections at the CSU-wide symposium on biotechnology in Santa Clara, CA between January 5th and 7th, 2017. We look forward to more such fun conferences in 2017!
The Sethuraman lab will be at the 2017 CSUPERB Symposium in Santa Clara, CA from January 5th-7th, 2017 at the Santa Clara Marriott. Dr. Sethuraman will be hosting a biotechnology design workshop on conservation genomics and policy (Thursday 10am-6pm), a graduate student information session on balancing work and life (Friday 5pm-7pm), and a lunch topic table session on model-based population genomics (Friday 11:30am-1pm). Yumary and Michael will present a poster on their recent work on predatory lady beetle population genetics (Friday 8pm-10pm) , and Shiori will present her and Melissa's work on PPP, the NSF funded pipeline for model-based population genomics (Saturday 9am-11am). Interested in our work? Come find us! See the full schedule and venues here. See you in Santa Clara!
I am looking to hire a scientific programmer/postdoc to help spearhead our NSF-funded project on developing a pipeline for model-based population genomics. The position will be based at CSUSM, but will have the potential for ample collaborative development with the Hey Lab at Temple University.
