Reid Brennan has graduated!

Reid Brennan is now Dr. Reid Brennan. He has already moved on from Davis and will soon be starting his postdoc at the University of Vermont in Melissa Pespeni’s lab. Congratulations Reid!

The first two chapters of his thesis work are  published (see below), and the third – which integrates association mapping with genome scans to discover the genetic basis of adaptation to different osmotic environments in killifish – is on its way. Hold onto your seats!

Brennan, R.S., R. Hwang, M. Tse, N.A. Fangue, and A. Whitehead (2016). Local adaptation to osmotic environment in killifish, Fundulus heteroclitus, is supported by divergence in swimming performance but not by differences in excess post-exercise oxygen consumption or aerobic scopeComparative Biochemistry and Physiology, Part A, 196: 11-19. PDF.

Brennan, R.S., F. Galvez, and A. Whitehead (2015). Reciprocal osmotic challenges reveal mechanisms of divergence in phenotypic plasticity in the killifish Fundulus heteroclitusJournal of Experimental Biology, 218: 1212-1222.  PDF.
