Albertson lab Awarded NSF Grant to Study the Evolution and Genetic Basis of Rest-Activity Patterns in Fishes

Craig Albertson's lab was recently awarded a 3-year NSF grant to study the evolution and genetic basis of rest-activity patterns in fishes. The project investigates a new hypothesis to explain how a high diversity of similar species can coexist in the same environment, that species partition their habitat temporally via divergence in the circadian timing of activity, day vs night.
