New Paper on the Evolution of Skin Color

I was toodling around my Google Reader today over lunch when I spotted a link in the Scientific American blog feed about genes related to skin color.  Since that is something I study, I clicked through to Scientific American which led me to the EvoAnth blog.  I was reading along when I suddenly realized they were talking about MY PAPER which is already available online (here) and will come out in print sometime in the next few months. So since other blogs are talking about it, I thought I'd mention it here as well. :)

That's two papers down and one to go to meet my goal of three papers published by April! I did publish this commentary in November as well, but it wasn't on my research so I'm not going to count it towards my goal.  I'm so excited to have one of the papers based on my dissertation work published and I hope to have the other out soon as well.  If you want to keep an eye on my publication record (and I know you do), I set up a Google Citations site a while ago.

Okay, enough self-promotion for today.

  1. Oh wow, well this is the first chance I've had to speak to the author of a paper I've commented on (it's the author of evoanth here).

    I'm always paranoid that I'll misrepresent a paper somehow, being a lowly undergrad without much of a background in genetics.

    Are there any corrections I should make? Did I do it justice? AM I WORTHY!?!?!
