Paul Blischak, Theresa Bolaney, and Erin Harvey presented a poster based on a simulation study focused on Hyobanche microsatellite data analysis. I eavesdropped while they were presenting the poster to people who stopped to ask about the work. They did an excellent job of explaining the model they developed and the implications of the study for examining polyploid species using microsatellite markers. These talented undergraduates are RUMBA fellows. RUMBA is a project to pair biology and math majors to work together on research projects, and it is funded by the National Science Foundation.
