Leah is currently a student at Skidmore College, in Saratoga, NY. While in the Hanson lab, Leah worked with mentor Stephane Bentolila on a project that surveyed mtRNA editing sites for polymorphisms inArabidopsis. While Leah came into the lab with most of the lab skills she used for this project, she had the opportunity to go through all the steps of sequencing from start to finish. Additionally, at the annual Summer Student Symposium, Leah won the Colonel”s Cup for best presentation!
