<p>Congratulations to the 66 students&nbsp;who particiapted in the June 2020 vWISE Program. &nbsp;44 students have already completed all of their PCs and 29 sequences are ready to be submitted to NCBI! &nbsp;Remeber to keep working on your clones to get them finshed.</p>

400 Sequences from the 19-20 Academic Year have been published on NCBI  Go to the Pulbished Sequences page for 2019 and go the the listing for your school to see if yours is there.   Congratulations!

WSSP Students and Teachers,

If you find that your waveforms are getting too small to read in 4Peaks, please use either FinchTV or SnapGene.  Both of these programs allow you to adjust the height of the waveforms near the end of the sequence.  Links for both of these programs can be found in the Resources menu on the Lab Notes Page   

Congratultions to the 21 students and 4 teachers from Campbell, Alea, Kapolei and Waipahu High Schools who finished the two-week Biotechnology Science Scholars Program at Waipahu High Schooll in Hawaii!   41 unique clones were sequenced and are being analyzed for possible publication on the NCBI DNA sequence databases.  The Waksman Student Scholars Program (WSSP)  thanks Michael Sana and the Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation for supporting this program.  A video about the BSSP in Hawaii can be found here.  

WSSP Students and Teachers,

A series of new videos have been posted on Lecture Notes page that cover the background and analysis for PCR, Digests, DNA sequencing, and Expression Analysis.  These should be helpful in reviewing the steps you will perform in the WSSP research project.
