Microsatellite as a Tool<br />Fine scale population analyses <br />Highly variable<br />DNA Polymerase stutters<br />Repeat units added or deleted<br />DNA repair mechanisms not 100% effective<br />http://studentreader.com/files/repeat_microsatellite.png<br />
Monotropauniflora(Indian Pipe)<br />Uniflora has large variation in color and in blooming periods<br />Variation is evident across sympatric and allopatric populations<br />
Exploration of the Medical Field<br />Assisted career decision making <br />Exploration of Scientific Research<br />Learned how scientific process works<br />Gained an appreciation for conservation and nature<br />Summer Enrichment<br />
To the James Grahm Brown Foundation and all my mentors who assisted and made my summer experience possible<br />A Sincere Thank You<br />
