CRL hosts Evolutionary Medicine Students for Skeletal Biology and Genetics Laboratory

The Cobb Research Lab hosted Evolutionary Medicine undergraduate students who were taught by Dr. Michael Campbell at Howard University. Associate Curator, Christopher Cross conducted their lab for the day using the laboratories resources on Friday October 7th, 2016.  The purpose of their visit was to examine the skeletal specimens in the lab in order to gain insight to the techniques of the lab as well as the research analysis. In addition, Mr. Cross instructed the students to complete general genetic research to conduct gene lists for several individuals in the Cobb Collection based on the individual's cause of death.
