March 20th is the deadline for both abstract submission and early registration for the 40th Annual West Coast Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Conference, which will take place on Saturday, April 25th, 2015, at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. The 2012 Medal of Science winner and President of Seattle’s Institute for Systems Biology, Dr. Lee Hood, will present the keynote address; with Lloyd Smith and others at Caltech in the early 1980s, Hood created the first automated DNA sequencer that would eventually revolutionize biology and open the door to the modern era of “big data.”
The one day WCBSUR Conference will feature up to 120 poster presentations and 100 seminar presentations by undergraduate researchers; more than 500 students and faculty from throughout the nation are expected to attend.
