Alan Lemmon, Scientific Computing Associate Professor, has been awarded the university’s Developing Scholar Award by the Council on Research and Creativity. The award is based on Lemmon’s strong cumulative record of achievements in scholarship, teaching and service. Of particular note is his research in phylogenetics and his methods to lower the costs of genome sequencing.
