Event Description

Wherefore art thou Delftia? What is it that makes Delftia Delftia? Join the NCSU Libraries for an in depth examination of the Delftia DNA found by the Wolfpack Citizen Science Challenge.

NCSU students, the BitBot, and the Genomic Sciences Laboratory have worked hard to uncover the genetic code of the microbe Delftia acidovorans living on campus with us, but how do we make sense of that string of As, Cs, Gs, and Ts? The NCSU Libraries will be hosting a hands-on workshop where participants will use free online tools from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) to do real bioinformatic analysis of our data. No previous experience or subject expertise is necessary, just enthusiasm and lots of curiosity!
