Graduate Student Research Award

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!
