Bio students win 3rd best student paper in international conference

posted Feb 27, 2020, 8:02 PM by SLSU CAS

BS Biology students Krizz Audrie Trinidad and Jeric Presas brought home the 3rd Best Student Paper Award at the International Meliponine Conference and Asian Apiculture Association-Philippines Symposium held at the Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) at Los Baños, Laguna, February 25-28, 2020.

 

Biology student Krizz Audrie Trinidad presents their paper (on the left panel) and received their award (on the right panel).

Trinidad and Presas won the award for the paper they presented in the conference entitled “Pollination of the Passion Fruit Passiflora edulis Sims.f. flavicarpa Degener in Lucban, Quezon Philippines.” In this study, they investigated the foraging behavior of carpenter bees and their impact on fruit set and quality of yellow passion fruit. They were able to show that the low percentage of fruit set in open pollinated flowers might be an indication of low pollinator-plant ratio in the farm. They were supervised by their research adviser, Prof. Wilfredo Barrera, Jr.

BS Biology Professor, Mr. Essex Vladimer Samaniego, bagged this year's Best Poster award for the study on the "Distribution, Density, and Diet of Invasive Alien Species (IAS) of Frogs in Mount Banahaw-San Cristobal Protected Landscape (MBSCPL)" (conducted in collaboration with fellow BS Biology Professor, Mr. Wilfredo Barrera, Jr.), during the 32nd Regional Symposium on Research, Development and Extension held at Balar Events Place, Balaring, Boac, Marinduque, October 10-11, 2019.

Mr. Essex Vladimier Samaniego (first-right) receives the award.

The poster presentation of the study, which was funded by the SLSU-Office of Research Services and which was also hailed as Best for the Natural Sciences Category for SLSU's 2019 In-House Review, bested all other entries from the State Universities in the CALABARZON region including Marinduque State College and West Philippines University, as well as various other participating Agricultural, Fisheries, Environmental, and Scientific government agencies in Region IV. 

Organized by the Southern Tagalog Agriculture, Aquatic and Resources Research, Development and Extension Consortium (STAARRDEC), this year's competition had the theme "Science, Technology and Innovation: Enabling Commercialization and Global Competitiveness", and is "aim[ed]... [at making] researchers from various member institutions to strive hard in achieving quality R&D activities, and therefore, package better technologies for countryside sustainable development". 

The annual activity is likewise "aim[ed] not only to recognize the most significant RDE results in the Southern Tagalog but also to promote increased interaction among researchers, extension workers, local government units (LGUs), and technology stakeholders", the organization's program says. / CAS Web Development Team

Mr. Wilfredo Barrera Jr., faculty-researcher under the BS Biology program, is one of only 50 researchers from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations to receive the ASEAN-India Research Training Fellowship this year to do research for six months in India.

Mr. Barrera will be working on expression analyses of zinc metabolism genes of biofortified rice lines at the ICAR-Indian Institute of Rice Research, under the supervision of Dr. C.N. Neeraja, Principal Scientist (Biotechnology) of the Crop Improvement Division. Just last year in November, Mr. Barrera has also received a scholarship grant to attend a summer school on Food Nutrition and Security at the University of Costa Rica.

The ASEAN-India Research Training Fellowship is a flagship funding program started by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India under the ASEAN India Science and Development Fund, with Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) as the implementation partner. 

The fellowship aims to support ASEAN young researchers to work at any of the Indian research/academic institutions. The opportunity was first made available to Southern Luzon State University-College of Arts and Sciences after having been invited to be part of the ASEAN University Network-India Innovation and Technology Summit in December, attended by Dean Mari Jane Lee and Dr. Shiela Manzanilla // CAS Web Development Team



Battle of the Neurons 2017

Battle of the Neurons is an annual activity of the SLSU Haynayanon. This year, the students organized the 6th Battle of the Neurons with the theme, “The Genetic Drift”. It was held at the Audio-Visual Room, College of Engineering last November 17, 2017. Eleven team quizzers from different colleges joined the pool of the fittest. The master of ceremony, John Vincent G. Navalan, opened the program with doxology and national anthem followed by explaining the guidelines of the quiz bee. Ms. Kathleen O. Pornobi, BS Biology Chairperson, welcomed the quizzers and the quiz contest proper started with the help of the quizmaster, Mr. Wilfredo Barrera, Jr.. There were 37 questions divided into 10 easy, 10 average, 10 difficult and 7 questions for sudden death round, the newly added round that gives the thrill and excitement to the contestants and also to the audience. The sudden death round gave a sudden change in the ranking of the team quizzers. Team- BER got 143 points, Team Friends of Caesarxz got 153 points, Team Friends of Friends of Cesarxz got 168 points, which placed them at the 3rd, 2ndand 1stplace, respectively. Then the declared champion was Team SWS 1 from College of Teachers Education with a total score of 210.

The competition ended with awarding of the winners and giving of certificates to all the participating quizzers. Overall, the program ended successfully with everybody, being fed not just with food but also with knowledge. / Alyssa R. Abrigo, Education & Research Committee Head
