Sidney Vong

Undergrad (OU)

Sidney is an Honors College undergrad in our lab. He comes from Edmond, OK. For his Honors research, Sidney is sequencing whole genomes of North American Meadowlarks (Sturnella) to understand their evolutionary history, tempo and mode of speciation, and to identify a set of markers useful for measuring introgression between Western and Eastern Meadowlarks. Sidney hopes to go to grad school in ornithology focusing on molecular approaches to understanding avian diversity.
