Community Annotation Poster at SUNY Old Westbury's 2019 Student Research Day Conference

Every spring, SUNY Old Westbury hosts an annual Student Research Day.  Students showcase the results of their research and creativity through oral, poster, media and art presentations or exhibits. These academic and artistic achievements represent the effort of in-class assignments and out-of-class experiences conducted with faculty, with more than 100 students participating each year.

The 2019 Student Research Day was held on Tuesday, April 16th under the theme: RESEARCH FOR CHANGE.

Among the undergraduate students presenting research posters, Sendi Mejia and Suhani N. Shah presented the maize annotation work they conducted under the direction of Assistant Professor Dr. Christos Noutsos. Dr. Noutsos was one of eight award recipients to partake in the First Maize Annotation Jamboree for Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUI) faculty held on January 10-11, 2019 at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, CA.

On Tuesday April 16 of 2019, Dr. Doreen Ware, Gramene's Principal Investigator, and Dr. Marcela Karey Tello-Ruiz, Gramene's Project Manager & Outreach Coordinator, attended Student Research Day at SUNY Old Westbury to support the students' research efforts.
