How sex can help to win the race
Every year the International Max Planck Research School for Evolutionary Biology (IMPRS-EB) holds a retreat. During the retreat, the third year doctoral candidates present their results in a talk; all other doctoral candidates usually present posters. At the end of the retreat there is a prize for the best talk and a prize for the best poster each year.
Due to the current situation, this year the retreat took place online via zoom. Posters do not really work there. That’s why the doctoral candidates had the idea that instead of posters a small video about their own work could be produced. Instead of the poster prize there was a prize for the best video clip.
This prize was won by Pauline Buffard, doctoral student of the CRC 1182 and member of the IMPRS-ES.
