Master student. (B.S. honors degree July 2011- July 2013). Genome sequencing of wild-derived populations of Drosophila melanogaster allows us to identify putatively adaptive TEs that are segregating in populations. During my internship in the laboratory I am getting more and more fascinated by the challenge of unveiling the relationship between genotype and phenotype. I would like to expand my knowledge on this topic during my future doctoral studies.
