Stefan Prost

Stefan is a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University with a research focus on genome architecture, comparative genomics and paleogenomics.  He has worked on such diverse projects as creating the first complete mitochondrial genome of New Zealand’s first dogs, to real-time DNA barcoding of some rare herpetofauna (the recently re-discovered Jambato toad Atelopus ignescens, which was thought to be extinct for 28 years, a rare species of blind snake Trilepida guayaquilensis, and two undescribed species of Dipsas snakes) using nanopore sequencing in the Ecuadorian rainforest. Stefan will be co-instructing our first field course at the Green Lab, titled Genomics in the Jungle, in the summer of 2018.
