Geneticists - Does anybody have designed primers (or referenced primers) for heavily degraded (museum specimen) CO1 in a passerine, or better still a finch. 🙏

Useless existence? Money aside the conservation engagement work you do is invaluable to many! I’ve loved and learnt so much from your writing am I’m sure MANY people would agree with me on that. But yes you’re right, it’s frustrating that funding is so hard to come by.

Oh crikey! I’m so sorry to hear that. I already left a career for academia which I’ve mostly loved. But I’m now finding the longer I’m in it the more I feel stale, undervalued, deskilled, demotivated, and resentful at the discrimination I’ve experienced. Time to make a change.

I can relate. I’m leaving academia at the end of June. It was a very difficult decision but I’m incredibly excited to start working in the Charity sector. New challenges and opportunities ahead 😀😀😀
