Valuable Experience in Molecular Biology Research
Undergraduate Laboratory Technician (Current Employee), Tucson, ArizonaMarch 15, 2014
Pros: free educational experience in modern research in molecular biology.
Cons: no full time position available or possible career advancement
Daily routine involved familiarization with protocol needed for the experiment that needed to be performed. Notated protocol, objectives, and necessary (if needed) to aforementioned protocol in both a electron and paper lab note book. The experiment was then conducted with downtime being utilized to explore RNA Seq data for future experiments and annotation – more... of key genes.

During my time working in this lab I have learned the intricacies behind experimental design, execution of given protocols for a wide array of techniques common to molecular biology, and how to effectively communicate with other researchers to achieve a common goal.

The most difficult part of my position was being given tasks which involved obtaining new knowledge in modern bioinformatics in order to fully utilize next generation genetic sequence data for application. Although difficult it was not impossible and provided me with a new valuable skill involving computational biology.

The most enjoyable part of my position was the freedom I was provided to conduct research and develop protocols for working with non-model organisms. – less
