Each year, the program offers a small number of stipends to allow some URAP apprentices to continue work on their mentors' research projects over the summer. To be eligible, students must have been working with the same mentor for at least two semesters. Mentors nominate their students. These stipends are generously supported by a number of private donors.

Determining the Sex Ratio of Mosses

Summer 2019

Jordan Jomsky : Data Science and Molecular Cell Biology

Mentor: Jenna Ekwealor

This summer, I will be participating in both wet lab and dry lab research. While I extract and compile genetic data from moss samples, I will be performing statistical analysis and creating data visualizations for the genetic sex data of the moss samples. Further, I will be also attending the Botany conference in July to present on the undergraduate lab experience with data science and how to apply the principles of the discipline to botanical research.

Donor: Chandra Research Fellows - Chandra Fund
Message to Sponsor:

Thank you for sponsoring my education this summer! I would not be able to pursue research and gain the skills I need to get ready for a career in biology. I appreciate your generosity and will make sure I use this great opportunity to the best of my ability.
