Undergraduates

Zachary Zubek (Fall 2016 – present)dsc_0036

Zack’s honors thesis is looking at the patterns and consequences of inbreeding in Bugula neritina. He is rearing bryozoans in the lab to create deferentially inbred crosses, then comparing larvae from parents in the different treatments to estimate  self-fertilization, bi-parental inbreeding, and inbreeding and outbreeding depression.
