Hey New Jersey people, or people who live near NJ- Are you guys interested in some summer research?
There is a lab course on biochemistry hosted by Rutgers this summer, where you will be purifying a special protein of a type of jellyfish. During the research, you will spend a day catching jellyfish, and then use different techniques to extract the GCF protein, which glows in the dark. According to the website, you will use techniques such as "column chromatography of several types, gel electrophoresis, absorption spectrophotometry, and high pressure liquid chromatography."
The website with more information is here: http://dbm.rutgers.edu/11115433SpecialT ... ochem.html
To apply, you just need to answer three essay questions near the bottom of the page, and then you're basically in!
Hurry and register if interested, because the deadline is sometime soon (I don't know the specific date, I think next week). When you do get in, could you please register for the afternoon session? A lot of people registered for the morning session, but the afternoon session might be cancelled because no one wants to do it in the afternoon... (and I can only do it in the afternoon
Please also tell your friends if they might be interested. Thanks!
(This is also a great way to get a head start on next year's Cell Bio and Protein Modeling)
