This year, we have a DNA Club at SHS for the purpose of performing authentic DNA Research. The club focuses on microbiology and bioinformatics and mirrors the efforts of the Rutgers University Waksman Institute. Students have an opportunity to extract DNA and use similar processes and software that are used in all major biotechnology organizations. Mr. George Mellors, a teaching fellow from the Waksman Institute and an engineering teacher at SHS, serves as the club advisor.
