BIG Funding/Research News for the Foster/Baker Lab

A major grant from the John Templeton Foundation to study the Extended Evolutionary Synthesis was announced. As part of this remarkable $8 million award headed by Kevin Laland and Tobias Uller, $850,000 comes to our lab for research on the role of genomic/phenotypic plasticity in the adaptive radiation of threespine stickleback. A very exciting time for us, not only for the funding but also for the wonderful collaborators involved in the project.
