The people working there with me were fun to be around
Summer Research Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Nampa, ID – June 12, 2012
A typical day at work involved me searching for protein alignment algorithms online, downloading them, and running them with protein structural data. I learned that there are several programs out there that can align protein structures, yet none of them are perfect. There is a lot of room for improvement for these algorithms. The hardest part of the job was developing scripts in PERL to run all the structure data through these programs then using C++ to format the data. The most enjoyable part was working with the people that were in the lab.
it was a good learning time for me to have this job during my summers in college.
only had 5 weeks the first summer and 10 weeks the second summer to do anything.
