Thirty Molecular Genetics students attended a Molecular Biology and Genomics Research Symposium on April 27 where they had the opportunity to present their published research on genes in Landoltia punctata, a certain type of duckweed.

“It was amazing,” said junior Molecular Genetics student Zoey Maggid.  “It was such an accomplishment not only to be published as a scientist but also to do the project with my friends.”
