"I am a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of David Stern in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department at Princeton University and Howard Hughes Medical Institute. I was invited to Japan and the NIBB as part of the "Invitation Program for Advanced Research Institutions in Japan", funded by the JSPS. My official host is Satoru Kobayashi-sensei, and I have worked closely with Shuji Shigenobu-sensei on my project. I am interested in the mechanism and evolution of facultative asexuality in the pea aphid, Acyrthosiphon pisum. Using laser-capture microdissection with the new Arcturus XT LCM system at NIBB and nextgeneration sequencing at Princeton University, I hope to identify genes and pathways in germ cells that have been modified in the evolution of aphid reproductive plasticity. I have truly enjoyed my experience at the NIBB and Japan and enjoyed making new friends at the NIBB. I wish I could have stayed longer, but I am sure this collaboration will be successful and continue into the future." (Dr. Dayalan Srinivasan)
