BETHESDA, MD The Genetics Society of America (GSA) is pleased to name the recipients of the GSA Undergraduate Travel Awards for summer/fall 2014. These awards promote excellence in undergraduate research and education by providing financial assistance for undergraduate members to present their research at a GSA conference.

"It's inspiring to see the quality of research conducted by our undergraduate members," noted GSA Executive Director Adam Fagen, PhD. "We look forward to hearing more about their findings at an upcoming GSA conference and to following these talented scientists as they continue in their careers."

The winners of the GSA Undergraduate Travel Awards for summer/fall 2014 are:

Alex Murphy, Gonzaga University, Spokane, WA, USA

Research focus: "I am interested in how an extra chromosome in a cell, generated by a common mistake in cell division, affects how that cell can function, and I'm using brewer's yeast as a model organism to pursue this question."
Travel to: 2014 GSA Yeast Genetics Meeting
Mentor: Kirk Anders

Benjamin Walker, Roanoke College, Salem, VA, USA

Research focus: "My research tests the effects of estrogen on the development of facial cartilage in zebrafish (Danio rerio)."
Travel to: GSA 11th International Conference on Zebrafish Development and Genetics
Mentor: Christopher Lassiter

Sarah Cossey, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS, USA

Research focus: "I am interested in cellular signaling and its role in the evolution of multicellularity."
Travel to: GSA 16th International Conference on the Cell and Molecular Biology of Chlamydomonas
Mentor: Bradley Olson

Ann Aindow, University of California, Berkeley, USA

Research focus: "I use biochemical and genetic methods to study the phospho-regulation of the alpha-arrestin Rod1 and its role in the down-regulation of the mating pathway in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
