Another of BioBE’s stellar student researchers is headed to graduate school! Sam Velazquez has been working with Dr. Sue Ishaq on bioinformatics in our lab. She is a bright face in the room, conducting experiments, programming, working on data visualization, and taking initiative on a variety of projects in the lab, so it’s no wonder that she’s been accepted into the University of Oregon’s Bioinformatics and Genomics Master’s Program! The program is a combination of in silico academics and training internships offered through a variety of local institutions.
Sam is completing her bachelors in Biology. She’s currently looking into the applications of probiotic cleaning solutions. We are excited to see what she embarks on next.
