Daniel on structural variants in a finch hybrid zone

As part of the AOS conference co-organized by Stepfanie, Jen, and Gemma, postdoc Daniel Hooper presented on his ongoing investigations of the Long-tailed Finch hybrid zone in northern Australia. Daniel’s talk featured an overview of the potential importance for speciation of structural rearrangements within chromosomes, a potentially largely overlooked level of variation that might play a role in many avian speciation events.
