yielding to results

Working with bacteria and fungi requires patience specially when inoculating many petri dishes. However, after waiting for the culture to grow we have observed different factors that were affected by the treatments in different strains. For example, spore production, metabolites and morphology; such major components differentiated as time progressed for each combination that we tested for. Furthermore, the project is yielding to products and it will be interesting.

Greetings everyone,

My name is Oscar, I am doing research here at Northwestern University under the mentorship of Dr. Wang and Ethan Zheng, a graduate student. I am majoring in Chemistry with a minor in Biology, and enjoy playing chess. Since I was a kid I found it interesting the way DNA was responsible for the genetic make-up of an organism and wondered what specific molecules form such structures. After taking organic chemistry, genetics, bio-organic, and many other classes my comprehension of the nucleic acids, as well as their tautomers, became clearer.
