What’s one cool thing about the program so far?
“I feel like I’ve progressed in becoming more knowledgeable and learned how to do things on my own. [Maninder] teaches you that you have to do it on your own first, before getting help. And it’s really exciting to actually be in the lab and learn a lot of new and different things. My favorite thing so far would be PCR (polymerase chain reaction). I think it’s really interesting how you are able to make multiple copies of one sample of DNA.”
