The International Circle of Genetic Studies is an organization based out of UCLA. Dr. Carlos Tirado, the advisor for the organization, came to visit our Biology students last month to introduce his project and the students who run the organization.
In their presentation, the representatives gave a presentation on genetic mutations and advances in the research of genetics. Our students were enthralled by the knowledge and expertise presented on stage, and the presenters were surprised at just how knowledgeable our students are with regards to genetic studies.
In cooperation with the International Circle of Genetic Studies, some of our students will start to do research in genetics and present their finding next year at the International Symposium of Genetics and Molecular Biology.
