The contributors of the OVAL Window have been away collecting data and performing research since early June. Regular posts will return on August 7th. In the coming weeks, look for a special report from the upcoming ISEMPH conference, news about new lab space in Strong Hall on the campus of The University of Tennessee, and reflections and essays by new regular contributors, in addition to continued posts about evolution and quantitative genetics. Our contributors have new research and experiences to share. It's going to be an exciting fall!
