Cody Horton was awarded runner-up and a monetary prize in the undergrad category for the posters at the 5th Annual Florida Worm meeting at the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, FL on May 18, 2019. He was presenting work from the BLY321 Genetics of Development Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE) in which they successfully used CRISPR to edit the genome of a small nematode worm, C. elegans. Some genome edits have caused male worms to become feminized.
