A Farewell Hike

Towards the end of 2016, the Jackson lab headed out to Bungonia National Park to make the most of the warmer weather. Ever efficient, the E3 team took the opportunity to catch blowflies for genomic analysis along the way.

The hike was also a chance to say goodbye to a few Jackson lab members who were departing. PhD students Ben, Nick, Jason and Elena completed their time with the group at the end of 2016, as did honours students Jen and Janelle.

The hike into Bungonia gorge was treacherous and tiring, but the group was rewarded with a swim in an idyllic river at the bottom.

While our resident hike-planner (Nick) has departed, there will certainly be more compulsory fun scheduled for 2017.
