WKU Biology Graduate Student Receives Gisela Mosig Travel Award

WKU Biology graduate student, Amanda Seaton, was awarded the Gisela Mosig travel award to attend the 113th General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology in Denver, Colorado (May 18-21, 2013).  This travel grant is awarded to the graduate student who submits the best qualified abstract.  Amanda works in Dr. Rodney King’s laboratory where she is defining the requirements for early gene expression in a newly discovered bacteriophage called HK639.  The Mosig award honors the memory of Gisela Mosig (1930-2003), a pioneer in the field of phage T4 genetics.  This award is sponsored by New England Biolabs, a recognized world leader in the discovery, development and commercialization of recombinant and native enzymes for genomic research.  For information about the American Society for Microbiology visit:  http://www.asm.org/.
