Ruth's project is honored as one of the "Big Questions of 2013" at the Evolution Supergroup Annual Retreat!

Ruth presented a chalk talk on UCEs and their relationship to copy number variation at the Evolution Supergroup annual retreat at the Broad Institute on 20th August. This talk was paired with a presentation by Nicholas Crawford, PhD student, BU, on the use of UCEs as phylogenetic markers. The question of why UCEs are so conserved and what their function might be made it into the final discussion to become one of the 'Big Questions of 2013'!
