Rebecca L Wilken (an artistic interpretation)

I am a current graduate student at American University, working under the direction of Dr. Vikki Connaughton. I joined OpenWetWare in 2016 to assist in teaching undergraduates in the biology department at American University. OpenWetWare is a valuable tool in teaching biological concepts. As a part of BI-210, students actively use OpenWetWare to develop excellent lab notebooks reflecting their scientific progress throughout the semester.
