Drs. Peter Dunn and Linda Whittingham Awarded NSF Funding

Drs. Peter Dunn and Linda Whittingham have been approved for $375,000 in grant funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for their project, “Collaborative Research: Functional genomics of plumage ornaments in a warbler”. This project will be in collaboration with their colleague at Skidmore College in New York, and they will be studying the genetic basis of sexually selected ornaments, such as size and color of plumage patches, in common yellowthroats. Congratulations on this outstanding accomplishment!
