I am up to 12 variable sites in my little chloroplast genomes, with one more marker to screen. And... AND... I have found massive amounts of intra-individual variation in a nuclear marker. What does this mean? It means that the scope of my project proposal has suddenly expanded, just over a month before I must defend the silly thing. Phooey.
This is supposedly Emergence Week for the 17-year cicadas, and I have yet to see a single one. I'm very disappointed, but hopefully this warm weather will bring them out soon. I don't remember the last one at all and I feel like I really missed out.
