Dr. Carol Lee and her Taiwan host, Dr. Wen-Hsiung Li, are using novel genome sequence data, generated for the first time for 35 arthropod species, to determine patterns of evolution across habitats. From these data, we can infer adaptations over both macro- and micro evolutionary time scales to determine physiological mechanisms underlying adaptation to environmental change.   Dr. Carol Lee…
