In fall of 2018, the Advanced Biotechnology class at Abraham Lincoln High School sampled plants at nearby McCoppin Park and isolated novel pink strains of Methylobacterium! What’s more, they sequenced the 16S rRNA gene from each isolate and learned to analyze Sanger sequencing data and to construct a phylogeny.
