Summer Studentship 2020 Prize Winners

Summer Studentship 2020 prize win Violette Pepperners, Georgia Whitton and Daniele Cotton

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.
