Plant Molecular Phylogenetics and Population Genetics Internship
Description: This internship features an opportunity to learn DNA isolation, amplification and either DNA sequencing or DNA fragment analyses. Among plant genera being studied are Isoetes, Silene and Mimulus. Most of the work would be done in the new molecular LAB in the Natural History Building, located on the Mall in Washington, DC, but some DNA extractions may be done at the Museum Support Center in Suitland, MD.
