The 2nd AsiaEvo Conference supports young researchers and students, providing the following awards for presentations of excellent quality. The organizing committee members and symposium organizers will be the referees.
The Life Young Researchers Award
Early career researchers who earned a PhD degree within the last five years or a student are eligible to be considered for the Life Young Researchers Award. "Life Young Researchers Award" is sponsored by the evolutionary section of the journal Life, and the winners will be invited to the special issue "Selected Papers from the 2nd AsiaEvo Conference" to publish a paper free of charge.
Young Researchers Award was awarded to the following two young researchers.
Tyler Philip Linderoth (University of Cambridge)
Structural mutations, antagonism, and differential use of multiple Y alleles shape sex determination in ecomorphs of an African crater lake cichlid
- Tirtha Das Banerjee (National University of Singapore)
