My latest paper and my first solo-authored (!) paper is now available online. I propose some evolutionary consequences of a lesser-known component of animals mitochondria, the alternative oxidase (AOX).
This paper is a synthesis of my thoughts on stress, sex, and species ID problems that have been swirling around in my head for the past few years. I outline some ways to test the hypotheses I put forward and am working on those experiments currently. I'm excited to see where these ideas lead my research, and perhaps others' in the mitochondrial research field.
