Dr. Zhiqiang Wu

  • Postdoc
Zhiqiang was a postdoctoral associate. His previous work concentrated on plant organelle genome evolution, cyto-nuclear co-evolution, and population genomics.

At the Valenzuela lab he worked on the evolution of chromosomes and dosage compensation in turtles. This work was funded by the National Science Foundation (MCB-1244355 and IOS-1555999 to N. Valenzuela).
