Aphaenogaster, transcriptome, and wager

A wager with Rob Dunn

Visiting the Dunn lab at NCSU to collect Aphaenogaster samples from the Phytotron for gene expression analysis. While discussing my ongoing work to assemble the transcriptome of Aphaenogaster and look for genes (pathways) that are differentially expressed along a thermal gradient, Rob said something along the lines of

I bet money that you find that immunity genes are differentially expressed

Not one to turn down a bet, I suggested beer. Here’s my offering if we do find that immunity genes are involved: Heady Topper.

Anyone else want to bet?
