.collaborators.

Listed below are the collaborations that have produced papers, along with a brief description of the collaboration.  This is not a comprehensize list, so apologies to anyone who isn't on the list.  The list only includes collaborations that have resulted in published papers, so some ongoing collaborations are not yet listed.  


Jim Cheverud - Lloyola University Chicago - We work with the Cheverud lab on a variety of questions focused on the genetic architecture of complex traits, including factors such as genomic imprinting, maternal effects and epistasis.  



Allen Moore - University of Georgia - We have collaborated on various projects focused on the quantitative genetics of social evolution.



Chris Thompson - University of Manchester - We have been working with the Thompson Lab to understand the evolution and genetics of social strategies in Dictyostelium discoideum




Mike Wade -  Indiana University - We have been collaborating on various topics related to maternal effects and more generally on intraspecific interactions. 



Reinaldo de Brito -  UFSCar - We have been working with the de Brito Lab on topics related to the genetics of species differences. 



Gabriel Marroig -  Universidade de São Paulo - We have been working with the Marroig Lab on topics related to multivariate quantitative genetics
