Undergraduate researchers Zach Johnston and Nick Elliott win the Provost’s Award for the best poster at the San Diego State University Student Research Symposium (SRS). Poster title: “Molecular Evolution and Expression of Defense Genes Underlying Plant Carnivory”. Way to go! The SRS is a two-day event recognizing the outstanding scholarly accomplishments of SDSU students. Find out more about the San Diego State University’s SRS.

Tanya and undergraduate researcher Amanda Romaine are going to Evolution 2014! Please stop by Amanda’s poster on “The implications of life history on the molecular evolution of chemoreception in predatory paussine beetles”, research supported by NIH and the PERT program at the University of Arizona.
Update: We had a great time at Evolution 2014! Amanda had many people visit her poster and Tanya’s paussine chemosensory talk was well attended. We even had a chance to visit some carnivorous plants in the wild at the Green Swamp.
