My project is starting to ramp down. I am continuing to assist Fort Lewis in their procedure and reagent choices, while eagerly awaiting June so that I may use their labs. I have been accepted into Bio 113 at the fort, which will alleve the issues of project funding and liability. It appears that I will be able to implement my lab design, just not in the timely manner I had hoped for. One issue I am running into is my availability. I am having to balance this project, other school work, and now prep for the AP biology and calculus tests, and SAT subject tests. I will reach out to professor blake later today, and get an update on the status of the grant for the founding of the CRISPR program. While this is not the outcome I had originally expected, I am extremely pleased with this outcome, and I am looking forward to seeing the fruits of my labour.
