Meet the scientists of JKW Lab
Hi my name is Hannah Lachance and I am a laboratory technician in the JKW lab. The main project I am working on involves studying how organisms such as E. coli and B. subtilis react to RDX exposure.
Techniques I use in these experiments includes growing cell cultures in various mediums, extracting RNA and DNA, running reverse transcriptions in order to obtain cDNA, using organism specific primers to run PCR and QPCR and performing gel electrophoresis. I highly enjoy working in the lab because it helps reinforce all that I have learned in school in a very practical and meaningful way. In addition, I get to work with amazing people and have fun while learning and accumulating valuable skills.
