Cornell Fellow in Evolution & Molecular Biology

Genetics Research Laboratory, North Carolina State University
Raleigh, NC

Aims of the Fellowship

I will establish a database of tephritid immune system genes, which could reveal evolutionary patterns associated with known parasite-host relationships, in collaboration with Cornell College Professor of Biology Marty Condon. The DNA extractions and isolations, qubit assays, relpi g, and PCR I perform on the Dipteran insects of Dr. Brian Wiegmann and his collaborators will contribute to research associated with the National Science Foundation (NSF) Fly Tree of Life Assembly.
