Interests and Research

I am an undergrad at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  I will receive my B.S. this year in Biology/Psychology and a minor in Chemistry.  My interest in genetics stems from my evolutionary ecology course.  My research in the lab focuses on Phryma leptostachya, a species of plant located in various locations within China and North America.  My analysis
is preceded by DNA extraction, PCR amplification of a region of the chloroplast genome, and sequencing the PCR products to examine the genetic diversity among different populations.
