Well, the summer is officially over. I’ve put in 10 long weeks of work and I’ve accomplished quite a bit. While this series of blogs has been focused on my honors thesis project, I’ve also been working on the tRFLP project described in last summer’s blog series. With that project, I have gotten fragment data for every month from Mat 2009 to August 2010! The next step is the analysis of the fragments and creation of dendrograms to compare similarity in the bacterial community in each month over the course of the year. I’ve got my work cut out for me there too!
