Sarim Mirza

July 2016 - April 2017


Sarim was a BIOL 498 and 499 student in the Boucher Lab, where he worked on the molecular characterization of environmental strains of Vibrio vulnificus isolated from various regions of Dhaka, Bangladesh.


Imogen Sellman

September 2014 - April 2015


Imogen helped characterize the diversity of Vibrio cholerae strains isolated from the Ganges Delta of Bangladesh for her BIOL 499 project.


Jed Barlow

June 2011 - December 2014


Jed completed his BIOL 299, 398, and 498 projects in the Boucher Lab, where he developed various plugins for DNA sequence analyses for Geneious and the CLC Genomics Workbench.


Malcena Stalker

September 2013 - April 2014


Malcena completed her BIOL 499 project in the Boucher Lab, conducting molecular analysis of Vibrio cholerae and Vibrio metoecus in natural populations.


Guang Wei Xu

May 2013 - April 2014


Guang Wei worked on the identification, culturing, and preservation of marine bacteria for his BIOL 398 and 499 projects.


Chantal Magnan

January 2012 - April 2013


For her BIOL 498 project, Chantal worked on the phylogenetic comparisons of several Vibrio cholerae strains. She then sequenced and analyzed the whole genome of a hypermutator V. cholerae strain from Bangladesh for her BIOL 499 project.


Lauren Bradford

May 2011 - August 2011


As an undergraduate researcher in the Boucher Lab, Lauren performed high-throughput PCR and sequencing of various genes from multiple environmental Vibrio cholerae strains to study horizontal gene transfer.


Lauryn Pounder

May 2011 - August 2011


Lauryn worked on developing a screening protocol for hypermutator strains of Vibrio cholerae using antibiotics during her summer stint in the lab.


Alexis Fischer

September 2010 - May 2011


Alexis was vital in the establishment of the Boucher Lab. She came to the University of Alberta as a Research Technician after working with Yan at MIT.
