Joseph Straub, a PhD student in the lab, presented at the weekly biology seminar on his summer internship. Joseph, with the support of New Mexico's INBRE and the Louisiana Tech's School of Biological Sciences, spent 6 weeks in New Mexico learning skills in bioinformatics. He shared his experience with undergraduates, graduate students and faculty, discussing the basics of bioinformatics, applications, and his experience away from Louisiana in cooler, dryer New Mexico! He did a great job introducing people to a necessary and evolving field of biological research!
