Lucas Boatwright Quote
“As a Biology major and a Math minor at Samford, I took several upper level courses in biology and math. However, I feel that bioinformatics was the most significant course in my acceptance into graduate school. I learned many research skills and scientific procedures that I was not exposed to in other courses. I would highly recommend this course for any student considering continuing their education past an undergraduate degree.”
Lucas is now a graduate student studying plant genetics in Arabidopsis, a model organism for genetic study, in the laboratory of Dr. Karolina Mukhtar at the University of Alabama, Birmingham.
