Fall 2016

The Center for Vertebrate Genomics is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2016 Genomics Scholars Awards. We received a variety of excellent applications and applaud all the applicants on their submissions. The variety of projects funded to date reflects the diversity of genomic research performed by the members of the CVG. Congratulations to this year's recipients:

  • Ms. Lauren Choate, graduate student, Danko laboratory, for "Global Discovery of Transcription Factor Binding in Asthma."
  • Ms. Emily Funk, graduate student, McCune laboratory, for "Divergent gene expression patterns underlying the lung-to-gas bladder transition in ray-finned fishes."
  • Mr. Sangjo Kang, graduate student, Tumbar laboratory, for "The role of histone H3 K4/K9/K27 me3 levels in adult hair follicle stem cell (HFSC) plasticity."
  • Ms. Brooke Marks, graduate student, Coonrod laboratory, for "Escape Pathway Signaling in Tamoxifen Resistant Breast Cancer."
  • Mr. Darshil Patel, graduate student, Weiss laboratory, for "Proteomic and genomic analysis to reveal the role for the DNA clamp subunit HUS1 in maintaining genomic stability upon UV-induced DNA damage."
