Congratulations to all of the students in the June 2018 WISE program! You were all very successful in your project and we hope that you learned a lot and had fun. Please remember to finish the bioninformatic analysis of your unknown unknown clones so that we can post them on the NCBI databsae.
200 more sequences from the 2017-2018 WSSP have been posted on NCBI. That brings to almost 1000 sequenes posted on NCBI in the last year! Great work students. We are still reviewing clones from the 2017-2018 DSAP. If you have not finished yours please do so now so that they are posted in time for the start of the fall semester and your college applications.
Almost 300 of cDNA sequences that were analyzed during the 20172018 acedemic year have been posted on NCBI. Go to the WSSP2017 Published Sequences page to see if your clone are lited under your school
Congratulations to the 6 teacher and 32 student scholars who participated in 2017 WSSP Summer Institute a the Waksman Institute from July 5 to July 21. 456 plasmid clones were purified and 143 of these clones were sequenced. Connect to this link for pictures of students involved in the project.
Congratulations to the 22 students who completed the 2017 WISE Summer Institute from 6/19/17 to 6/30/17. Participants isolated and analyzed 132 cDNA plasmid clones and over 120 of these clones have been sequenced! More than 50 of these sequences have been submitted to NCBII. Go to the 2017 WISE Published Sequences web site to see if yours has been posted. Pictures of students in the June Summer Institute have also been posted.
Over 170 students joined us at the Rutgers Waksman Institute on Friday, December 2, 2016. Student representatives from over 30 participating NJ high schools made Power Point presentations and reported on their progress with their academic year research investigations being conducted at their schools. Continue with this fine work! Students will present their findings and results at the next follow up meeting scheduled for February 2017.
100 Sequences have just been posted on the NCBI datbase! These include more than 90 clones analyzed by students participating in the RU and LLNL 2016 summer Institutes project year. See if your clones are listed on the Current Project Published Sequences Page!
