Farquhar Students Present Research at Genetics Conference in California


Norma Salazar and Quincy Conway, undergraduate biology majors at the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences, presented a research poster at the Oomycete Molecular Genetics Network Annual Meeting in Pacific Grove, California, Mar. 10–12.


Quincy Conway and Norma Salazar, undergraduate biologymajors at the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences, presented a collaborative research poster at the Oomycete Molecular Genetics Network (OMGN) Annual Meeting in Pacific Grove, California, Mar. 10–12.

Titled “Transcriptome Analysis of the Entomopathogenic Oomycete Lagenidium giganteum Reveals Plant Pathogen-Like Effectors,” the poster is part of ongoing research conducted under the guidance of Aurelien Tartar, Ph.D., associate professor at the college. NSU Alumni Jhanelle Dawes (B.S., Biology ’12), Ana Paula Delgado (B.S., Biology ’11), and Lauren Douma (B.S., Biology ’08) have also contributed to the research in past years.

In addition to presenting at the conference, Conway and Salazar had the opportunity to hear from other researchers in the field and network with scientists from across the country. OMGN also awarded each student travel fellowships to support their attendance and participation at the conference.
