To RADseq or not to RADseq?

It’s a cliche to say that we live in a moment of unprecedented possibility for molecular ecology, as high-throughput sequencing methods drive the cost of collecting DNA sequence data ever lower. But at the same time, it’s a tricky moment, … Continue reading

The Goldilocks zone of missing data

Reduced representation sequencing approaches, such as RADseq and UCEs, have provided some fascinating inferences in recent years, but something has always been missing in these analyses: data. As sampled taxa become more divergent, the price paid for more loci is … Continue reading

The genomics of bee sociality

Bee species cover the spectrum of sociality: there are solitary bees, there are eusocial bees – which are divided into facultative eusocial (the ones that can be either solitary or eusocial depending on external cues) and obligate eusocial bees, and … Continue reading
