Katherine L. O'Shaughnessy

  • Former Undergraduate Student
I was a summer intern with the ITA program at the Valenzuela Lab and the REU in Molecular Biotechnology and Genomics at ISU in 2009. I worked on developmental biology and expression profiling of genes involved in sex determination in turtles. I am now a Ph.D. student at the University of Florida where I am studying vetebrate EvoDevo.
