Visitors this summer

We have two visitors this summer to the lab of Computational conSequences:

  1. Karla Valenzuela, originally Chilean, working for her master’s at Dalhousie in Halifax (NS, Canada). Karla is doing some analyses I always was curious to do: evolutionary trace analyses, plus a few other, related, thingies. This means going back to my structural biology roots.
  2. Ismael Hernández, originally from Mexico, working for his PhD in CINVESTAV-Irapuato. Ismael is analyzing several strains of Bacillus isolated from Cuatro Ciénegas, Coahuila, Mexico.

We are talking a lot in Spanish, which is inspiring the Canadian Students in the lab to keep learning the language. Of course, we have had to explain differences between Chilean Spanish and Mexican Spanish, and it’s been fun.
