How local is local? What potential do species have to adapt? Are species adapting to the roadside? How can we analyze this data? These questions and more occupy much of my graduate school thinking. Plus, I get to wander around prairies and along the side of the road for research, how cool is that!
My Project's Posts on the Field Log
During high school I was fortunate enough to be able to take advantage of multiple research opportunities. I participated in the Howard Hughes Summer Biology Experience during three summers, assisted in a lab at Purdue during one summer, and during the last trimester of my senior year did a "Science Projects and Techniques" class where I was able to help on Selaginella genome annotation. I identified three sequences: MT1, MT2, and PseudoGSTU1.
