MSc Student Awarded Genome Prize for Research Excellence
Integrative Biology MSc student Kate Pare won the Genome Prize for Research Excellence at the Sixth International Barcode of Life Conference. Kate's presentation on "By-passing the taxonomic impediment in Neotropical Collembola to measure changes in diversity and phylogenetic structure" won her the $500 prize for student oral presentations at the meeting attended by more than 600 researchers from more than 50 nations. All conference abstracts were published earlier in the week in a special Open Access edition of the journal Genome (http://www.nrcresearchpress.com/toc/gen/58/5). Congratulations to Kate on a great job!!
