Sarah Whiteley (right) visited the Wildife Genetics Laboratories at UC from University of Queensland this week to apply our PCR sex test to embryos from an Pogona embryological series she is developing as part of her honours program. Her work is throwing up some novel insights to the gonadal development of sex reversed lizards likely to change our understanding of this process. Sarah is shown here with IAE PhD candidate Meghan Castelli.
Sarah is supervised by Vera Weisbecker at the University of Queensland and Clare Holleley (CSIRO), in collaboration with Wendy Ruscoe (UC) and Team Pogona. She is scheduled to complete her honours mid year.
