Undergraduate Research Assistant at Hatoum-Aslan Lab
While working in the Hatoum-Aslan lab, I developed a deeper understanding of laboratory procedure and technique. I gained skills in scientific procedure including designing and carrying out experiments, preparing various media (broth, agar, plates, etc.), and inoculating cultures. I was responsible for tracking procedures and results in a laboratory notebook for later review by myself, the graduate student with whom I worked, and Dr. Hatoum-Aslan, the supervising professor. I also developed familiarity with Microsoft Excel data entry, functions, and graphing.
