of 2007 we were both offered an intern position
working at the Institute for Systems Biology in the Baliga Lab.
Throughout the summer we had the great opportunity to work with
teachers and scientists to develop science curriculum for the Bellevue
School District. We were also exposed to research experience so we
could have a better understanding of what it means to be a research
scientist and grasp the basic concepts of microbiology. The friendly
and helpful people in the Baliga lab helped make this a valuable
experience for both of us!
