Opsin gene paper published!
After a long time in the making Dr. Rachel Jacobs' manuscript on opsin gene variation in diurnal lemurs has been published! I was fortunate to participate in a minor role, and this is a really interesting paper which found multiple opsin gene alleles in sifakas and the indri, as opposed to the nocturnal (yet closely related) wooly lemurs. Glad to see this out, and proud to be part of such a neat paper! Click the link below to go to the Biology Letters website!
