Alan Garcia-Elfring



I’m currently a PhD student in the Barrett lab at McGill University where I’m using genomic tools to study pigmentation phenotypes in ball pythons (Python regius).

I also work with threespine stickleback, studying: (1) The genomic response to seasonal shifts in environmental conditions in bar-built estuaries from Santa Cruz, California, and (2) the genomic basis of freshwater adaptation in populations from Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, Canada.
