TJ Educational Experiences: Collecting Samples from Jefferson Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery
Students in Dr. Burnett's DNA Research lab have been working in collaboration with officials from the Jefferson Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery to collect biofilm from a black mold type substance that has been growing on them. The purpose is to find out exactly what this substance is and how park officials can best keep these important landmarks clean.
Recently, Dr. Burnett and several of her students traveled out to both locations to gather some more samples. The TJ Partnership Fund documented the trip and was kind enough to share some photos with us.
