The 2012 Lee Segel Prize for Best Student Paper was awarded to a paper modeling virus transmission dynamics in grasses. The award was presented on Saturday at the 2012 Society for Mathematical Biology conference.
“Spatiotemporal Model of Barley and Cereal Yellow Dwarf Virus Transmission Dynamics with Seasonality and Plant Competition” was published in the Bulletin of Mathematical Biology in November 2011. Co-author Carrie Manore gave the talk in a plenary session on Saturday, July 28.
The Lee Segel Prize is awarded by Springer, in partnership with the Society for Mathematical Biology, to honor the best paper and best student paper published in the Bulletin over the previous two years.
