Summer_Dearinger-web.jpgSummer Dearinger, a Mayville State sophomore from Walhalla, N.D., recently presented her research work at the Plant and Animal Genome XXV Conference (PAG) held in San Diego, Calif. The conference is designed to provide a forum on recent developments and future plans for plant and animal genome projects. Consisting of technical presentations, poster sessions, exhibits, and workshops, the conference is an excellent opportunity for professionals and students to exchange ideas and applications on this internationally important project.

Dearinger’s poster session presentation was titled “Histone Modification in Common Bean is Induced by Higher Concentrations of Iron and Zinc.” While at the conference, Dearinger was able to network with other individuals doing similar research, as well as learn new techniques in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) field.

Summer’s attendance and presentation at the conference was made possible through the INBRE (IDeA Network of Biomedical Research) research work she is doing at Mayville State University. Her supervisor is Dr. Khwaja G. Hossain.
