Research & Project InterestsMy research is focused on the development, modification, and application of experimental techniques for use in the classroom and laboratory. I am currently working on the design of an automated DNA sequencing experiment and the development of an allelic typing exercise to be incorporated into the senior level molecular biology laboratories. Future work will involve experiments in RT-PRC and fornesic analysis.
