Beginning of the end

Published by at 3:59 am under Uncategorized

It is unbelievable how fast this semester has gone. I can’t believe we are already here – almost approaching the end. I am really glad that I had the opportunity to be apart of the PHAGES experience this past semester. Not only have I learned a lot, but I have gotten to know you all a little better, and the experience has been amazing .

Flashback to ¬†first few sections of lab, when we watched the Hatful lectures: I remember feeling so overwhelmed with everything that I didn’t know about bacteriophages and the bioinformatics software. Looking back, it’s crazy how much I’ve gained from this research experience, and I am incredibly grateful. For example, we’ve learned how to annotate DNA sequences and blast protein sequences and through these techniques found novel protein sequences, frame-shifts, and a BUNCH of NKFs. These accomplishments are nothing short of awesome!

As we close out this semester, I want to thank you all for including me in your class. Study hard and finish strong!
