Goodbye to Karl

It's the last day working in the Zak lab for Karl Romanowicz. Karl, our trusty research tech and in-house Yupper, was accepted into Michigan's EEB PhD program earlier this year. He will be joining George Kling's lab this fall and is doing research in Alaska this summer. During his time in the Zak lab Karl was responsible for creating and optimizing our RNA extraction protocols, moving forward several projects by working on the molecular protocols for both functional and ribosomal genes, keeping up our obligations up for our field sites, all while working as an author and co-author on several papers. We all want to thank you for all your hard work and wish you all best with the next steps in your career. We also hope you have fun in Alaska riding grizzlies!
