The Garfield Lab is looking for a B.Sc. / M.Sc. student

The Garfield lab is currently looking for students to participate in Bachelors/Masters research. The lab aims to better understand how developmental gene expression evolves and how changes in an organism's ecology/environment interacts with embryonic development to produce new phenotypes. One topic we’re particularly interested in is understanding the genomic changes associated with the adaptation of Drosophila sechellia embryos and larvae to the toxic Noni fruit in which they live (this fruit is toxic to related fly species). For this project, the student will investigate breeding methods to cross D. sechellia to the standard laboratory fruit fly D. melanogaster and will then use the resulting hybrid larvae to examine how regulatory elements differ in the two genomes using RNA-Seq and ATAC-Seq. For this project you will be supervised by one of our PhD students and direct interactions with the PI.
