In the summer of 2015, Adam Session was a postdoc working at the DOE Joint Genome Institute with Dan Rokhsar, who also holds a joint appointment with the University of California, Berkeley. Nowadays, Session is an Assistant Professor at Binghamton University in New York. He and Rokhsar have recently published a Nature Communications paper that builds off their early collaborations that could help crop breeders and researchers predict how crops and model organisms may evolve.
The Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Investigator Program recently awarded $21 million to 21 University of California, Berkeley researchers. Of this group, four are faculty scientists in the Biosciences Area.
