My background as an undergraduate exposed me to various research experiences including a senior project involved in marine microbial ecology. Now working as a technician on the GenEx2 project, I have been involved in characterizing bacterioplankton assemblage dynamics in mesocosm experiments, developing PCR primer sets to study the diversity of polyunsaturated fatty acid synthase genes in Antarctic bacterial cultivars and natural bacterioplankton populations, and am now involved in fabricating the first generation of Antarctic microbial DNA microarrays, optimizing RNA extraction and fluorescent labeling procedures for the microarray analyses.
