EEB Tuesday Lunch Seminar - Molecular Evolution of Predatory Traits in Rattlesnakes

Michael Hogan, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Postdoctoral Fellow, Davis Rabosky Lab
Tuesday, October 3, 2023
12:00-1:00 PM
1010 Biological Sciences Building Map
This event is part of our weekly Tuesday seminar series.

For my seminar, Hogan will be presenting his findings from his research on the genetics of how predatory traits evolve. This project takes a deep dive into the genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic machinery underlying trait evolution in North America's largest venomous snake, the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake. Hogan's talk will focus on how sensory and venom genes respond to overlapping selective pressures, such as prey preference, and will also discuss how he was able to identify key regulatory factors controlling a major ontogenetic shift in venom composition for this species.
