Amborella Genome Papers Published!
Thursday, January 02, 2014
Two papers from the Amborella genome project were just published in Science. Amborella, as the sister group to all other living flowering plants, serves as an evolutionary reference for studies of the genes, genomes, and other features of all other flowering plants, and the first paper reports the genome sequence and initial analyses of its structure and evolution. The project team features many folks from our program, notably Srikar, Andre, Brad, Doug, and Pam (and former program members Solon, Xinshuai, and Brandon), as well as other colleagues at UF (Matias Kirst and Juan Acosta). The UF team led the second paper, which presents a new approach for assembling and validating the genome of a non-model organism. What a wonderful accomplishment. Congratulations to the Ambo team!

Biology PhD student named HHMI International Student Research Fellow
Friday, August 23, 2013
Francisa Leal has been named HHMI International Student Research Fellow. Last Fall, departments and colleges held internal competitions to select nominees for the University-wide competition. Finalists were then nominated to HHMI for the national competition. Sixty-one institutions nominated 377 students, of which 42 were selected. What a wonderful honor. Congratulations Francisca!
