Today a new postdoc, John Abramyan, joins the lab. John comes to us from the University of British Columbia, where he has been working on amniote tooth development. He also has interests in genomics and gene-family evolution, and here he’ll be working on our NSF-funded project on voltage-gated sodium channels. Welcome to Blacksburg, John!
Incidentally, John was involved in the recent genome project for the painted turtle. This story describes his work on that project and includes a video and a photo of John looking really sciencey.
