ETEAL: Making the Journey Real
By participating in the QEP-funded project, specifically in cloning the EHV-1 glycoproteins, I have gained knowledge and experience in several different lab techniques that I had not known prior to this project. By learning these techniques, such as working with centrifuges, incubators, fume hoods, nanodrop technology and several other types of lab equipment, I feel more prepared as a scientist. This undergraduate applied learning experience has made me more confident as a student as well as a future intern at a research company. I also feel more knowledgeable about the EHV-1 virus and its role in infection. I have also gained skills in working and communicating with fellow students which I can apply to any future career that I may choose.
