Summer Studentship 2020 Prize Winners

The summer studentship workshop planned for 2020 in Oxford was unable to go ahead.

Instead, a virtual event was organised and 20 students gave three minute presentations of their projects.

We are delighted to announce the following winners:

First place goes to Violette Pepper for her talk about a mutant screening of Eragrostis tef, an Ethiopian cereal crop.

Georgia Whitton, who focused on the role of alternative splicing and how long-read sequencing is enhancing our understanding of the transcriptome, won second prize.

Third prize went to Daniele Cotton who studied Gene-level analysis of breast cancer heritability in European populations.
