Oh Happy Day!

Tzu-Tong is now officially a PhD Candidate! Hooray! Congrats to "Stone"!, and looking forward to results from "Evolution and Function of Farina in Notholaenid Ferns". Check out his awesome crown of N. standleyi

Botany 2016 was a success!

    • fern bus

 The Pryer lab made its presence felt at this year's Botany conference, held in Savannah, GA. Below are a list of the talks presented by current and former members of the lab:

  • A case of mistaken identity revealed as a new species of Cheilanthes s.s.(Pteridaceae). 

              Sosa, Karla; Windham, Michael D.; Huiet, Layne; Yatskievych, George A.; Pryer, Kathleen.

  • A small new genus uniting surprisingly disparate cheilanthoid ferns (Pteridaceae). 

              Pryer, Kathleen; Windham, Michael D.; Huiet, Layne; Rothfels, Carl.

  • Toward a community-derived classification for lycopods and ferns. 

              Schuettpelz, Eric; Schneider, Harald.

  • Next-generation polyploid phylogenetics: Low-cost, high-throughput resolution of hybrid polyploid complexes using PacBio and PURC. 

              Rothfels, Carl; Pryer, Kathleen; Li, Fay-Wei.

  • Consistently inconsistent: Transcriptome data reveal widespread molecular evolutionary rate asymmetry in ferns. 

              Grusz, Amanda; Schuettpelz, Eric.

  • Phase-Specific Gene Expression in the Homosporous Fern Polypodium amorphum

              Sigel, Erin; Schuettpelz, Eric; Der, Joshua.

  • Insider trading: Understanding nutrient exchange in the Azolla-Nostoc symbiosis. 

              Eily, Ariana; Li, Fay-Wei; Gile, Gillian; Pryer, Kathleen.

  • Fern genomes on the horizon. 

             Li, Fay-Wei.

The Fern Bus continues to push the frontiers of fern knowledge forward!
