Project Title: A predictive approach to population genomics using existing sequence data and a G matrix simulation model

Sarah Flanagan (Biology, Texas A&M Univ., 2016) developed different approaches to generate better a priori predictions for next-generation sequencing population genetics studies. Upon completing her fellowship at NIMBioS, Dr. Flanagan accepted a position as Lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.
