My name is Robert Fisher and I’m a molecular biology major and a senior at Millersville. I chose to do this project because operons are one of my favorite topics in genetics. I had always enjoyed how straightforward they were. It was during this project that I realized that operons are much more complicated than the ones presented in class. This project has also provided real research experience, which is something I had been looking for as well. I believe this project will help with my experience in graduate school. Learning how to perform the skills I have outside of class, and attempting to troubleshoot different parts of this project, has given me an appreciation for how difficult research can be at times. I am certain that this project will help me make myself more valuable as an up-start molecular biologist.
