Spotlight of the Week 8/16

 

This week’s spotlight is Jess Daly. Jess is a senior research intern, and her current project is in collaboration with the Invertebrate Museum at RSMAS. Along with our lab technician, Kevin Rodriguez, Jess has been working to sequence the DNA in various samples from the museum, including corals, gastropods, and molluscs. Even though these samples are decades old, some of the tissues have been well preserved enough that through a technique known as PCR, the DNA sequences of the species can be determined.
