Advanced Biology Students Partner with NMU for Unique Training Experience

Mrs. Grout’s advanced biology class participated in a week-long workforce training experience with the NMU Clinical Laboratory Science department and Dr. Matt Jennings. The students extracted their own DNA and ran several tests to identify pathogens from unknown samples. They also performed a lab to verify whether a specific mutation was present in glioblastoma tumors that were developed by NMU. The students ended the week with a tour of the NMU CLS laboratories that included an ABO blood typing lab for each student and a lab to identify which bacteria were present in an unknown sample through biochemical characterization.
