Do you have any experience culturing cells (mammalian, yeast or microbial)?

Yes. I have experience culturing microbial and yeast cells.

Do you have any experience in molecular biology (electrophoresis, PCR, etc)?

Yes. I have done PCR, electrophoresis, molecular cloning.

Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

I worked in the Alm lab the summer after freshman year. I was working on characterizing both phenotypes and genotypes of V. Splendidus strains that have been evolved to have high salinity tolerance through serial selections. This past summer I worked on the MIT iGEM team, trying to adapt a biological switch using plant phytochromes to control protein targetting.

Anything else you would like us to know?
