The 2017 Evolution meeting in Portland, Oregon just wrapped up! It was my first opportunity to attend one of the large US Evolution meetings, so it was a bit daunting at first! It was great to reconnect with friends and meet new people, all while exploring beautiful Portland!
I presented a poster on preliminary work using ddRAD sequencing to assess genetic differentiation between different northern flicker sub-groups. I experimented with using a fabric poster and I think it was a success! I would definitely recommend this option to others, but it does require a bit of extra time for shipping. This is the first chapter of my dissertation and I’ll be spending the summer writing it up for publication – stay tuned!
