On March 8, 2023, Sabrina Mostoufi successfully defended her PhD! Sabrina gave a terrific talk on the role of Wolbachia in plastic recombination. She showed that Wolbachia titer does not affect the magnitude of plastic recombination. She further showed that Wolbachia has pervasive effects on transposable element expression in a variety of genetic backgrounds. Sabrina is now an instructor in the departments of Biology and Computer Science at UO.
