Harvard PhD candidate Philip Lai recently used an Anolis distichus specimen to practice his X-Ray Micro-Computed Tomography (aka microCT) wizardry. The technology takes many X-Ray images of a subject from varying angles then relies on powerful software to reconstruct a three dimensional representation based on the reflectance or transmission of X-Rays through different tissue types …

Curriculum vitae update

I’ve finally made the jump to preparing my CV using LaTeX. I used a modified version of the modern cv template. I edited the code using ShareLatex and the project is hosted on GitHub. A compiled PDF of the most up to date version can be downloaded here.

R packages published

Just a quick note that I have posted (my first!) two R packages to GitHub. The first (POPBAMTools) is a set of functions to organize, annotate and analyze data from the population genomic software POPBAM, written by my co-advisor Dan Garrigan. The second package, AFLPTools, performs error rate calculation of AFLP data to assist in the selection of …

How to set up a lizard room

A few years ago the Glor lab wrote a series of posts on Anole Annals about the evolution of our lizard room at the University of Rochester. The room has since moved to the University of Kansas and continues to be successful using many of the same methods.  Today Jonathan Losos collected our efforts into …

Running structure on BlueHive

The folks in the Glor lab have been doing a lot of AFLP work recently and using structure to analyze these data.  To identify K (the number of genotypic clusters in a sample in individuals) we have been using a hierarchical approach proposed by Coulon and colleagues. We’ve largely been happy with this method, but …

Fun with DOF

I just came across a tool to create a variable depth of focus image.  Above is my first attempt.

Year in Review: Anolis porcatus in the Dominican Republic

It has been a good year in my research life.  I have been lucky to be involved in some fun projects that hit the presses in 2012. Over the next few weeks I will post a brief summary of each, in the order they were published. Links to access each paper can be found on …

Geckos in Boston

I just heard from Jonathan Losos that I’m in a video playing at the Boston Museum of Science. Here is the backstory… Before starting my PhD research on anoles, I studied New Caledonian geckos with Todd Jackman and Aaron Bauer at Villanova University. I continued that research while I worked at the Academy of Natural Sciences of …

Content Added

I’m slowly working my way to making this a fully functional site.  I’ve added my publication list, a (to be expanded) research summary, and an area to make data publicly available.  I’ll keep at it, next up are PDFs for the pubs page.  Also in the works is a digital bookshelf of my personal library, and a …
