Three students from Ouachita Baptist University’s J.D. Patterson School of Natural Sciences presented research at the Midsouth Computational and Bioinformatics Society (MCBIOS) conference March 23-25 in Little Rock. Logan Clay, a sophomore biology and psychology double major from Benton, Ark.; Jake Edmondson, a junior biomedical studies from Benton, Ark.; and Nolan Games, a junior biology and computer science major from North Little Rock, Ark., each made poster presentations at the conference. Games also was selected to give an oral presentation.
The MCBIOS is a regional meeting where research faculty, graduate and undergraduate students from Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Texas gather and present research. To be considered to participate in the conference, students or research faculty must submit an abstract and application. MCBIOS then selects presentations to participate. Since the conference primarily is for graduate and postgraduate students and faculty, Clay, Edmondson and Games were among only a few undergraduate students accepted to present their research.
