Nat Clarke received one of the 2015 Myer’s Trust Awards to develop a new transcriptome in Sarsia

An internationally recognized expert on foraminifera, Earl H. Myers was the first to demonstrated alternation of generations in this group of organisms using time lapse photography. His wife, Ethel, assisted Earl with his research studies throughout the world. Ethel desired that his work be remembered in a lasting way by establishing a trust in their names as part of her will in 1984. The Trust awards grants for the enhancement of studies in the marine sciences, including conservation and science education.
