Jericho Ortanez from Jason Stajich’s lab at UC Riverside is visiting the Spatafora lab this week. Jericho is an undergraduate in Biology and is working on the ZyGoLife project. We have funding as part of the ZyGoLife project for students to visit different ZyGoLife labs, learn new techniques, and build their professional network. Jericho is here this week learning our DNA and RNA extraction protocols. He is working with Ying Chang, Jeff Beard and Nick Spatafora. Great visit and we have really enjoyed having him work in the lab this week.
