Moved to the NEW Science Center Building

Since 01.Sep. 2018, the whole Biology Department moved to a brand new Science Center Building (25 East Drive, Amherst, MA 01002) in Amherst College. This new building is built on the basis of high energy sustainability with modern design style.

A happy coincidence of my two papers are online on the same day!

What a happy coincidence today! Thrilled to see our two frog sex chromosome evolution papers are out today! 1f64c 1f64c
Good chance to know more about evolution of sex-biased gene expression in early stage of sex chromosome evolution, and a crazy fast rate of sex chromosome turnover in true frogs. Check them out!
