Blog 3: Dirt Shenanigans

Tragically, we pick up where we left off – I was unable to use the facilities at Rutgers,  so we had to send our samples to Rutgers so that they could perform the next-generation sequencing themselves. Hopefully, the results will be sent back to us soon so that we can begin the current analysis.

Something that I have learned in this process is the importance of patience and adaptability, which I feel are two very important skills to learn in science, as results often do not support hypotheses or expectations.

I am excited to get to continue this project following the sequencing results.
