Jill Wegrzyn in the news

The recent release of the loblolly pine genome sequence has received a great deal of media attention with a couple of features that include Jill Wegrzyn’s affiliation at UConn.

This same team will continue this work to sequence, assemble, and annotate an even larger (and more interesting) conifer, sugar pine.

There are postdoc opportunities in Jill’s group here in EEB for those interested in participating in this exciting project (http://compgenomics.lab.uconn.edu/join/).
