Hi Dick, I have just joined as my lab-mate Ian Hogg is very involved and I too wanted to see what it is all about. The proposed barcodes don't work for many of my current island groups, so I thought I would see if anyone was doing similar work and what markers they were using. See you at IBC???
Great to see you here. I don't know if you remember me - I did my PhD in the Genetics department at UW (back when it was still called Genetics and not Genome Sciences!) and I took your course on plant evolution... must've been 2000 or 2001...
