Aedes Mosquito Research
With the Dr. Michael Reiskind lab, we are launching a population genomic analysis of Aedes aegypti in the Southeastern United States. Currently graduate student Kristen Hopperstad in the Reiskind lab conducted a population analysis of Ae. aegytpi using microsatellite loci and we will begin work on the genomic analysis in the shortly! We are very excited to see her results. Check out our recent work on Ae. aegypti on the Battle of the Aedes page!
Our PhD student Emily Reed is conducting a landscape genomics study along the urban rural gradient of the invasive Aedes albopictus. Check out more about Emily and her work here! Also check out a recent highlight about Emily in lab news here!
