High school students engaged in learned about Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). Most importantly, they learned how to extract DNA, conduct Gel Electrophoresis, basic Bioinformatic techniques, and analyzing DNA. All students engaged in presenting their results on the last day of the workshop.

Parents as well as guidance counselors from school also attended the last day. We are grateful to Dr. Peter Novick for conducting the workshop and two peer mentors, Bharti Kumari and Smagardi Tsourapa for helping students with their projects as well as their presentations.
