Justin Conover

Justin Conover is funded by an NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Biology to work together with our group and Mike Barker's group. Justin's research will focus on the effects of polyploidy on distributions of fitness effects. He will testing whether DFEs differ between an allotetraploid and its diploid progenitors, and he will also extend our joint DFE approach to test the correlation of fitness effects between subgenomes.
