Lots of labs seem to have acronyms these days. We struggled to find a good one, rejecting candidates such as SMEG (Slate’s Molecular Ecology Group), SWAG (Studies of Wild Animal Genomics), SMEL (Slate’s Molecular Evolution Lab) and GENE (Genetics, Evolution ‘N’ Ecology). Perhaps WAGS - Wild Animal Genomic Surveys - is most appropriate.
However, if were WAGs we would probably look like this. We don’t (much).
