This summer, the Johnston lab teamed up with Trinity College Dublin, School of Genetics and Microbiology and welcomed Marija Stepanovica and Adam McGlinchey, both pursuing their BSc in Human Genetics.
Both Adam and Marija worked with me on the genome/epigenome characterization of bacterial species isolated from human colorectal tumors.
Through SoundBio Lab, I served as a mentor to two high school students interested in learning how to teach a bioinformatics workshop. I helped Hannah (she/her) and Viviana (she/her) generate their teaching material, learn teaching techniques, and deliver their free workshops to English-speaking participants from all over the globe!
