Sequencing My First Plate of DNA - 'Priceless'  - a blogpost by Joan, 2016 YES! GGI Intern

YES! Global Genome intern Joan worked with Vanessa Gonzalez and Jose Zuniga (GGI) for his mentored project, completing the Iva annua chloroplast genome from the YES! GGI “bootcamp” group project. Joan writes about his "priceless" experience in the lab this summer in the blogpost “Seqencing My First Plate of DNA - 'Priceless.'"

The Youth Engagement through Science (YES!) program is a career immersion and science communication program for youth. YES! GGI interns spent 12 weeks during the summer and fall of 2016 building their science and communication skills, working side by side with scientists working with DNA in the National Museum of Natural History’s genomics laboratory, and doing independent research projects using the technology of genomic science.
