Field work in South Africa in Dec 2015
18 March 2016

Finally, several months delayed is a post about my recent field work in South Africa that took place in December 2015. I put together my tweets from the field and they can be accessed at this storify story.

This field trip was funded by the Global Genome Initiative (GGI) with the purpose of increasing the holdings of flies (Diptera) available for genome or genomic sequencing in the NMNH Biorepository. For that purpose, I sent a liquid nitrogen dry shipper to South Africa and back via FedEx. During the field work I kept the dry shipper in the back of my field vehicle. (see full blog post)
