First place in Science Fair

We would like to congratulate Carla, Valentina and Francisco for their first place price obtained in The Science Fair at Alexander Fleming School (their school). These secondary students participated in an internship in our lab and presented their results at this fair. They learned the basics of evolutionary biology and phylogenetics. During two months they struggled with DNA extraction and PCR, using Heleobia snails and Telmatobius frogs from the Andean Altiplano as model studies
