28th Fungal Genetics Conference

In March, Sam Kovaka and I attended the 28th Fungal Genetics Conference at Asilomar. Sam, who may have been the only undergaduate at the meeting, presented a poster on diversity and evolution of genes involved in fruiting body development in fungi. Sam continued the analyses described in the poster this spring, and extended them with comparisons of transcriptomic data (in collaboration with John Gibbons). We hope to write up the results later this summer or in the Fall.
