Eck Institute for Global Health faculty presented three invited lectures at the Fifth Annual Arthropod Genomics Symposium in Kansas City last week.  Mary Ann McDowell, Molly Duman-Scheel, and Michael Pfrender presented on three different arthropod genomes: sand flies, which transmit a family of diseases known as leishmaniasis; the mosquito species that transmits yellow and dengue fever; and Daphnia, a sensitive model species for environmental genomics and ecotoxogenomics, respectively.

In addition, Kyanne Reidenbach, a doctoral candidate in the laboratory of Eck member, Nora Besansky, presented a poster on her work on the most deadly and widespread mosquito vector of human malaria in sub-Saharan Africa.
