Egbert Simon
Faculty Advisor: Jeff Doyle
Year: 2005

Egbert is a student at Philadelphia University and worked this past summer in the Doyle lab. Under the guidance of Bernard Pfeil, Egbert worked on comparing 6 of 8 Teramnus species to Glycine max to determine their evolutionary relatedness and build a 1 Mb sequence. For this project, he learned how to use Bioedit to compare sequences, PCR, primer design, sequencing, gel purification and how to read and understand trees.
