Working in the Lab

The lab team is also very comprehensive. It involves people that not only work with the molecular lab PI but people that work with other researchers at the McGuire center. This feature makes the lab team a very integrative crew, helping each other in any way, using different perspectives from the different lines of research. In the lab we have a wide range of tasks, from processing butterfly/moth samples to delicate procedures such as DNA extraction and amplification. It doesn’t matter the task you are doing in the lab, there is someone there (always) that can help you in any way!
