    PopGroup55: Norwich

    The Population Genetics Group Meeting comes to Norwich this January (05th – 07th). In fact, it's coming to a lot of places. Tune in to find out how this beloved genetics conference is adapting to the COVID era with online talks, local meetups and “Twitter posters”. 
     
    This episode features friend of the podcast Mike Pointer, one of this year’s PopGroup organisers and host of the Abstract Bioscience podcast. PopGroup registration closes on 12th December.

    A genomic approach to oceanography

    A genomic approach to oceanography

    Can we really understand ancient shifts in oceanic currents by looking at the population genetics of migratory species? Find out in this episode, as Dr Jurjan van der Zee (University of Groningen) discusses his search for a warm-water corridor between the Atlantic and Indian oceans in the genomes of green turtles.
     
    In this episode we explore the recent Heredity paper: “The population genomic structure of green turtles (Chelonia mydas) suggests a warm-water corridor for tropical marine fauna between the Atlantic and Indian oceans during the last interglacial” https://www.nature.com/articles/s41437-021-00475-0

    Resisting the Tilapia Lake Virus

    Resisting the Tilapia Lake Virus

    Nile tilapia are the third most important farmed fish worldwide, but the emergence of the Tilapia Lake Virus (TiLV) threatens its sustainable production. In this episode, Dr Agustin Barría (The Roslin Institute) discusses his recent collaboration, where they used a natural outbreak of TiLV to investigate the genetic architecture of disease resistance.
     
    In this episode we explore the recent Heredity paper: “A major quantitative trait locus affecting resistance to Tilapia lake virus in farmed Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)” https://www.nature.com/articles/s41437-021-00447-4

    Why's that fish transparent?

    Why's that fish transparent?

    Red sea bream are an important fish in Japan, for both culinary and cultural reasons. But there’s a problem: transparent fish are appearing in fish farms! Join Dr Eitaro Sawayama (Nihon University) and find out how he uncovered the causative gene for this deformity, and what his work means for red sea bream aquaculture.
    In this episode we explore the recent Heredity paper: “Identification of the causative gene of a transparent phenotype of juvenile red sea bream Pagrus major” https://www.nature.com/articles/s41437-021-00448-3

    The return of wolves

    The return of wolves

    After more than 150 years, wolves once again roam the Germany countryside! Of course, a lot has changed in that time. Join Anne Jarausch (Senckenberg Research Institute and Natural History Museum Frankfurt) as she discusses her recent work looking at the genetics of this ongoing, rapid and natural wolf recolonisation.
     
    In this episode we explore the recent Heredity paper: “How the west was won: genetic reconstruction of rapid wolf recolonization into Germany’s anthropogenic landscapes” https://www.nature.com/articles/s41437-021-00429-6
