.Congratulations to our resident beetle guy for successfully defending his PhD yesterday! Reprolab's first PhD student has graduated!! All the best in your new lab Dr. Yap.
First off, some words from the main parties involved:
Thanks to all who came for the post-defense celebration!
A new semester has begun! If you're lucky, you might catch Dr. P in action at the following NUS modules: LSM2107 Evolutionary biology and LSM4259 Evolutionary genetics of reproduction.
Our graduate students Tyrone and Qihui will also be assisting her at LSM2107 Evolutionary biology. See you there, students!
Throwback to the time Reprolab took a break from doing science... to look for wildlife outdoors!

Last friday, ReproLab organised a lab field trip to Pasir Ris park! We were happy to introduce Dr Moritz Gold, our visitor from ETH Zürich, to our local flora and fauna. Also spot Shao Yang, our incoming Honours student, and Rebecca, our new research assistant, joining us for the first time!
We explored both the mangrove boardwalk and the beach.
Here are some of the interesting critters we spotted:
The trip ended with lab lunch and a birthday surprise for Tyrone (who is now our PhD student). Happy (belated) Birthday Tyrone, may your PhD journey be fulfilling and rewarding. Till next time!
At 2 long years, we were finally able to physically gather to celebrate someone's birthday! Happy Birthday Huiqing🎉🎉🎉! May you have many happy returns on your special day! Surprise successful 😎
Happy 2021! Here's to successful experiments and publications for everyone in the new year.
Reprolab just held an "Introduction to Mosquitos" workshop this week, kindly organised by our mosquito experts Hui Qing (PhD student) and Tze Xuan (UROPS student). The workshop covered the basics of mosquito research like trapping, identifying, and dissecting different species of mosquito.
