I wanted to remind students and advisors of our NEW award for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs for excellence in Rosaceae research.

There are some excellent students doing excellent research - and we hope to highlight their efforts at our next RosEXEC (U.S. Rosaceae Executive; https://www.rosaceae.org/community/us_rosexec) meeting in San Diego while everyone is there for the Plant and Animal Genome Conference!
As a reminder: Submissions will be judged upon the following criteria: - Novelty of the research - Clear and concise presentation - Ability to have high impact on the current understanding in the field - Current and future applications of the research
