Advanced Science Research Program
On December 5, three students from the Advanced Science Research Program at CSH High School attended the session on Genomes and Epigenomes at the "Plant Genomes, Systems Biology and Engineering" meeting at CSH Laboratory. In addition to listening to six talks by scientists from around the world, the students had lunch and discussions with two of the meeting session chairs, Dr. Jim Haseloff, from the University of Cambridge, England and Dr. Detlef Weigel, from the Max Planck Institute in Germany. Dr. Haseloff gave one of our students invaluable advice on their research project and offered to send key material. Dr. Haseloff also offered to mentor and collaborate with our students in the new field of Synthetic Biology. Meanwhile, our other research students were engaged in intense discussions with Dr. Weigel and one of his PhD students. The students were thrilled to be invited to join a global collaboration to study the evolution of Psuedomonas. Advance Science Research teacher, Mr. Jaak Raudsepp, shared, “All of the students had a very positive experience and returned to school energized to continue their research projects.”
