What I liked

I really enjoyed doing research in one of my professors lab. The research consist of studying a specific gene of a particular species and comparing it to the same species found in a different community (i.e. Dace from different creaks). Learning new lab techniques and learning how to interpert data was the most exciting part.

What I wish was different

Since I commute, my days to do research were very limited. So, I wish I had more days availiable to do research.


I would suggest taking every oppurtunity that is given, whether it may or may not require someone to get out of their comfort zone. I would consider myself to be a shy girl, and this summer I pushed myself to get involved more. I am now a peer advisor and do research (which I never thought I would do) for a biology professor. Get out of your comfort zone!
