Research Assistant at X-Sig Summer Research

As a member of Dr. Nikki Shariat's research lab, I conducted research on the presence of Salmonella serovars in Pennsylvania rivers utilizing CRISPR cas9 next generation sequencing. This project had the goal of developing a view of the diversity of this pathogen in these waterways. This research experience utilized modern techniques such as plaque assays, spot tests, serial dilutions, titers, streak tests, genomic DNA isolation, restriction digest, gel electrophoresis, and CRISPR-SeroSeq first step PCR. I worked in collaboration with another research student as well as employees of the FDA. The research conducted this summer was presented in a talk titled "Contribution of Increased Precipitation to Salmonella Abundance and Diversity in Freshwater" at ASM Microbe in 2018.
