On Friday morning, I take off for two weeks in Cameroon. Three students (Dan Portik, Brian Freiermuth, and Lauren Scheinberg) are already in Cameroon and already headed out to the first field site. Dan and Portik have already worked in Cameroon but this will be Lauren’s first trip there (though she has worked with me before in Nigeria). This trip will focus on getting diverse tissue samples to facilitate genomics work, collect samples for karyotypes, and even return with some live frogs for doing conservation-minded husbandry research. Looking forward to being back in Cameroon to see old friends, eat street food, and see some of my favorite animals (lovely little frogs!). Stay tuned!
