My project was focused on the isolation of chloroplasts from TW diatoms. This is important to study because diatoms such as TW affix a large portion of the world’s carbon dioxide. Isolating the chloroplasts proved to be a challenge for many reasons and I am continuing the work this semester in the lab.
