Dr. Lang leads trip to Cold Spring Harbor DNA Lab
Dr. Damaris-Lois Lang, Assistant Professor of Biology, led a group of Nyack students in a scientific project at Cold Spring Harbor DNA Lab in Manhattan. Those who participated are enrolled in the Human Biology and Anatomy & Physiology courses.
The students extracted their own DNA and performed a human mitochondrial sequencing activity. Students amplified a small region of their own mitochondrial DNA and used the product as a template for DNA cycle sequencing. The students have the opportunity to obtain their “finished” sequence and perform computer analysis of the data using the DNALC's online bioinformatics tool Sequence Server.
