Five members of the Environment Institute’s Australian Centre for Ancient DNA (ACAD) (Jeremy Austin, Jennifer Young, Jennifer Templeton, Denice Higgins and Janette Edson) attended and showcased their work at the International Symposium on Forensics, in Hobart 26-29th September. Jennifer Templeton won 2nd prize for her poster, which illustrated ACAD’s recent work on enrichment strategies to retrieve whole mitochondrial genomes from forensic and ancient samples.
Jennifer subsequently attended the Asia-Pacific Sequencing Summit in Bali, run by LifeTech and took the ‘best poster’ award for her poster. The prize was an Ion Torrent machine (Next Generation Sequencer).
Congratulations to Jennifer on this fantastic achievement and to all of the members of ACAD who were involved in the International Symposium.
