Two high school students from Tennessee have accomplished what many 4th year graduate students are still dreaming of doing…publishing their results in a top scientific journal.
Dalton Chaffee and Hayes Griffin worked with mentor R. Tucker Gilman, a former postdoctoral research fellow at the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, to study mate choice.
Their work was published this week in the journal Evolution.
The students began their research between their junior and senior years at Bearden High School in Knoxville. They wanted to know why individuals choose the mates they choose.

The DNA Learning Center published a short series of YouTube mini-documentaries about past or current work of notable scientists based at New York institutions. The videos were produced by New York high school students and have been voted a very creative learning tool by the American Biotechnologist community. Below is one of my favorite videos demonstrating the theory and practice behind the DNA fingerprinting technique. Enjoy!
