Rachel Jordan wins the 21st Annual Graduate Student Research Competition
On Friday February 22, 2013, six of our grad students presented their work in the 21st annual Biochemistry and Biophysics Research competition. The six talks were chosen from 23 submitted abstracts. As usual, the judges had a hard time choosing the winner from the six excellent presentations.
The 2013 winner is Rachel Jordan from the Bryk lab for her talk: “Evidence for heterogeneity of silent chromatin within the rDNA locus of Sacharomyces cerevisiae.” Congratulations to Rachel for a great talk on some very cool research.
21st Annual Graduate Student Research Competition
This Friday, February 22, 2013 at 4PM CST, the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics will hold its annual Graduate Student Research Competition. Talks were selected from 23 submitted abstracts describing outstanding work being done by grad students in the department. Cash prizes generously provided by our sponsoring vendors will be awarded for the top three talks.
The image is from the work of the 2012 winner, Karl Gorzelnik from Paul Straight’s lab. Karl described how imaging mass spectrometry was used to identify a novel enzyme involved in the communication between two different bacterial species.
Be sure to attend the vendor show before the competition.
