Yutong Zhang presented a poster on his research at the 2017 GREAT Symposium at the UC Davis International Center on August 30, 2017. Yutong visited our lab this summer from Zhejiang University (ZJU) in Shanghai. His goal was to detect coliphage in environmental and water samples, and to evaluate distributions of concentrations in the UC Davis wastewater treatment plant. He was very helpful in getting new assays running in our lab, and worked closely with Hannah Safford towards the end of his project for sampling, plating and counting many many many bacteriophage plaque forming units! Yutong plans to apply to graduate school this Fall. Best of luck to Yutong in his studies and research!
