    Posted by Syreeta Afadonis on 2/9/2018

    Dr Joseph Heras (postdoctoral scholar at UCI) spoke to Mrs. Glenning's Marine Biology classes about his research, genome mapping of prickleback fishes.  Dr Heras was an alumni of BHS, received his bachelor's at UCR, masters at CSULA, and PhD at UC Merced.  He also spoke to them about a PhD student (UCI) and her research on abalone and he spoke about his research of genomic mapping of different species of rockfish to see if there was a link between their genes and the type of food they are (carnivore, omnivore, herbivore).
