Our first summer research highlight comes from Gabe Preising, who graduated from Reed in 2020 and is now working as a post-baccalaureate researcher with me and Suzy Renn to extend his undergrad thesis work. Gabe is working as part of Suzy’s NIH award to study a species of fish where the females do not eat during early parental care because they hold eggs in their mouths (called mouth brooding).
Read Gabe’s post on the Reed CompBio Blog: Nets Full of Fish Brains.
