Congrats to alumni Hopkins Lab members Ben, Matthew, Andrea, Charlie, Megan and Robin on their new publication titled “A multi-dimensional selective landscape drives adaptive divergence between and within closely related Phlox species.” Read it here.
Congrats to Austin, Andrew, Andrea and Robin on their new publication titled “A cis-regulatory point mutation at a R2R3-Myb transcription factor contributes to speciation by reinforcement in Phlox drummondii” Read it here
Cheers to Andrea and Robin for their new paper out in Frontiers in Plant Science journal. The paper discusses the North American red-flowering Silene. Check it out here!
We are excited to welcome Christina Steinecke to the lab! Christina will be working in the lab as a graduate student and concentrating on speciation, major transitions and selfing. We are excited to have her become part of the our lab family!
Anna completes three weeks of fieldwork on perennial Phlox in the Midwest
We are excited to welcome Andrew Cameron to the lab! Andrew will be working in the lab as a lab technician. We are excited to have her become part of the our lab family!
We are excited to welcome Felix Wu to the lab! Felix will be joining the lab as a postdoc student. We are excited to have her become part of the our lab family!
Bridget collects Phlox nivalis (SC), P. buckleyi (VA), and P. longifolia (WA) to study the developmental basis of ovule number variation in the Phlox genus
The lab hosts two amazing Darin Butz summer interns, Olivia and Josh! Olivia is exploring plant-pollinator interactions with Grace and Josh is working on phenotypic variation of hybrids
