Why Study Mouse Lemurs?


Anne, Peter and Ryan, along with Lab Alum Dave Weisrock, attended the 2015 Mouse Lemur Workshop in Paris!

Anne and Peter served on a discussion panel.

Anne, Dave and Peter all gave talks. Peter’s talk was entitled “Improving the Microcebus murinus genome assembly using optical maps.

DukeToday writes an article about Peter Larsen’s work with the Duke Computing Cluster! – Congratulations Peter!!!

Check out the DukeToday article here about the Yoder lab’s usage of the Duke Research Computing system for lemur genomics!

Postdoctoral Associate Peter Larsen is promoted to Senior Research Scientist at Duke — Congratulations Peter!!!

Peter gave a talk at the 2015 American Society of Mammalogists meeting in Florida!

His presentation was entitled “Improving non-model mammalian genome assemblies using optical mapping technology.”

Peter wins a Post-doc Professional Development Award! — Congrats Peter!!!

He will use the award to present his research at the 2015 American Society of Mammalogists meeting.

Peter will present his research on lemur immunogenomics at the 2014 Evolution meetings in Raleigh!

His will give a talk entitled “Immunogenomics of non-model species: what can Ig-seq tell us about the evolution of the primate adaptive immune system?”

Peter will present a poster at the 2014 Deep Genomics Symposium in Arizon!

His poster will be entitled “Evolution of the primate adaptive immune system: insights from Ig-seq analyses of Coquerel’s sifaka lemur.”
