I am currently enrolled in Oregon State University as a graduate student in the Molecular and Cellular Biology program, working in the lab of Dr. Niklaus Grünwald. My primary function for the Milkweed Genome Project was programming for bioinformatics applications and the creation/maintenance of the website.
