Students listening to Jason Yuhas of the Mayo Clinic’s Cytogenetic FISH lab.

On October 16th and November 25th, Dr. Martin’s Molecular Biology labs visited the Pharmacogenomics Lab and Cytogenetics FISH laboratories. Yearly these facility receive over a million tissue samples from all over the world for analysis and diagnosis for multiple diseases. Many of the procedures utilized are molecular biology techniques that our students perform at Saint Mary’s, just on a larger scale, and many are automated. This is also an opportunity for our current students to interact with some of our alumni who are employed in the labs.
