We hosted a training session to learn about and use Oxford Nanopore sequencing for all members of the Claremont Colleges.  The training was a success, with representatives from all but one of the Claremont Colleges.  Plus Keon Rabbbani, a student in the Finseth and Van Arnam labs, was able to sequence an entire Streptomyces genome for his thesis!

Thanks to Dena Grossenbacher and the Biology Department at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for inviting me to talk about meiotic drive in monkeyflowers!  It was such fun to interact with the lively biology department and even do a little (unsuccessful) Mimulus hunting.
