TBT: Soft sheep, hard sheep

23 Jul

10 years ago, Joachim Hermisson and I published a paper in which we coined the term “soft sweep.”

Later, when I defended my PhD and left Joachim’s group, the group gave me a doctor’s hat decorated with a soft sheep and a hard sheep. The two species of sheep probably speciated sympatrically.

I don’t have the hat anymore, but I kept the sheep and I thought I’d share a picture of them today.
