GAS - 2018

Last weekend, we found ourselves in Carrollton at the University of West Georgia for the Annual Meeting of the Georgia Academy of Sciences.


In all, 5 students presented 4 posters at the session on Friday night. All of the posters were on some aspect of Ranavirus genetics. Their abstracts can be found here: https://digitalcommons.gaacademy.org/gjs/vol76/iss1/


In all, the students did a wonderful job representing Gordon State College and the Amphibian Disease and Ecology group!


Amanda Mileham, presenting her work on the deoxynucleoside kinase gene as a potential gene for reconstructing Ranavirus phylogenies.



Here are Justin Serna and Ami Jo Davis presenting their work on the eIF2-α homologue and a putative tyrosine kinase protein as potential genes for reconstructing Ranavirus phylogenies.



Here is Riley Fuller presenting her work on one of the two myristilated membrane protein genes as a proxy for phylogenetic reconstruction in ranaviruses.



Here is Leigha Henson presenting her work examining the utility of partial sequences for detecting recombination in emerging Ranavirus isolates from the UK.
