Publication spotlight: recent student publications

Publication spotlight is a series designed to showcase noteworthy BCMB publications from students and faculty. If you have a recent publication that you are proud of, tell us about it.

-Matt Shirley

BCMB students are constantly producing high quality publications, though sometimes it may be difficult to follow a colleague’s work which falls outside your own field. That is why this first issue of the Publication spotlight will focus on a roll-up of this year’s publications from BCMB students. A list of hard-earned publications follows:
