All eighteen undergraduates in NIMBioS’ 2012 Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program ended their eight-week research projects today and presented their results.
Working closely with NIMBioS postdocs and UT faculty as mentors, each REU worked on one of six different research projects at the interface of mathematics and biology. This year’s projects were modeling the evolution of sexual imprinting; modeling protein translation and genome evolution; developing natural pesticides; modeling Salmonella transmission in swine; agent-based modeling of Johne’s disease; and modeling early evolution of HIV.

On our 2012 REU page, you will also find more detailed profiles of some of the REU participants. More photos from today’s final presentations, as well as team photos, are on the NIMBioS Flickr photostream.
Congratulations to the 2012 NIMBioS REUs! While your REU experience comes to a close, we wish you well in continuing the research that you began here.
