Last year, Aitken lab alum Jill Hamilton published a paper in the American Journal of Botany, Genetic and morphological structure of a spruce hybrid (Picea sitchensis × P. glauca) zone along a climatic gradient. I interviewed Jill about her paper and got the story behind the research last August. Listen to the interview:
Jill is currently a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Janice Cook at the University of Alberta where she is part of large genomics projects on both white spruce and lodgepole/jack pine. She will be joining Johanna Schmitt’s lab at UC Davis this summer.
