I was the recipient of a Graduate Student Research Award!! Yippee!
The title of my proposal was: “Inferring Patterns of Biodiversity in a young Andean ecosystem: developing a novel high throughput sequencing approach for phylogenetic and phylogeographic studies in Bartsia (Orobanchaceae).”
Basically, I’m modifying a traditional AFLP method to be able to sequence the different fragments on a Roche 454!
Thank you Botanical Society of America!
