High school students 201527 Aug 2015, by Erick
This summer we had two high school students, Andrew and Kate. They were quite sharp, so we threw them in the deep end with some real science projects. Andrew taught himself shell programming and Docker, and learned enough B cell analysis to work on making Bioboxes to be used for validation of B cell sequence analysis software. Kate taught herself shell programming, Python, and learned some undergraduate abstract algebra to learn about the SPR graph by characterizing its distribution of pairwise distances. They were both very independent, and a pleasure to have in the office!
