MNHS Senior Has Work on Gene Sequencing Published

Satwik KurapatiManalapan High School senior Satwik Kurapati attended the 2023 Waksman Institute Summer Experience (WISE), a program that engaged high school students in an authentic research project in molecular biology and bioinformatics. It focused on the isolation, characterization, and DNA sequence analyses of genes from the duckweed Landoltia punctata, and how these compare to those found in other species. Satwik's work on gene sequencing completed at WISE was published in the NCBI Nucleotide database. 

Satwik is also finalizing another research on molecular epidemiology as part of the Cambridge Centre for International Research (CCIR) and will soon publish his paper.
