We are pleased to announce the winners of the annual prize for the best student-led paper in Heredity for 2022. The quality of papers was very good, and we would like to congratulate all authors for their contributions. It was challenging to select a winner from so many excellent submissions, but the award for this year goes to Mario Ernst.
- Genomes or RADseq, mountain goats don't mind.
- One of the big decisions in planning a genetic study is what kind of sequencing approach to use. This episode we talk to Daria Martchenko and Aaron Shafer (Trent University, Canada), whose paper compares and contrasts whole genomes to RADseq in a study of mountain goat demography and adaptive history.
- Special Issue - Beyond transcription: The role of post-transcriptional gene regulation in adaptation and evolution.The aim of this Special Issue is to synthesise our current level of understanding on the role of post-transcriptional variation in different eco-evolutionary contexts and diverse taxa, highlight the diversity of regulatory mechanism controlling...

Bastiaan Star is an evolutionary biologist and associated professor at the University of Oslo, Norway. He is interested in historical ecology and conservation genomics and uses a range of genomic tools (including ancient DNA) to investigate how genetic variation, population structure and population size have changed over time during the onset of human exploitation and ecological globalization...
