In the Genomics Resourse Laboratory, Nathan ran DNA, RNA, and cell samples that customers sent in from labs both in and outside of UMass. From there, Nate extracted DNA aliquots and assessed that quality and quantity of samples. 

Last year I kind of could see all of the output or all of the product. But now working in the lab itself, I really have a far better understanding of what goes in to all of the different components of a lot more of the research that gets done.
