Medora Lachman, one of the graduate students in the Yeoman lab, won an award for a poster last week. I have been helping Medora to learn bioinformatics, and to wrangle her 1500 sequencing samples!
Repost from Yeoman Lab: “Congratulations to graduate student Medora Lachman who was awarded the Laurie Henneman Outstanding Student Presentation award for best graduate poster at the 2016 Montana Academy of Sciences annual meeting!!! Medora is studying the interrelationships between maternal nurturing, gut microbial succession, and immune maturation in ruminants. Medora’s research is supported by the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station, USDA’s W3177 multi-state project (Enhancing the competitiveness of US beef) funding, and by Land ‘o’ Lakes.”
