Alex Young

alexedited2I completed my BScH at Acadia University where I started as a Co-op student. I began my research career with an 8-month term at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada where I found my interest in molecular biology. I explored this interest during my Honours at Acadia, developing a DNA barcoding protocol for preserved fungal specimens with a side project that involved annotating the mitochondrial genome of the fungus Phialocephala scopiformis. I am excited to now be at StFX solidifying my love for molecular biology in a whole new system – the gastropod nervous system! In the future, I hope to begin a career in private research or continue my graduate studies.
