A high school student at work in the lab at part of an Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) project at Rutgers University. About 300 New Jersey high school students have an opportunity to do original research decoding a DNA sequence, working with bacteria containing a fragment of a DNA copy of RNA from brine shrimp.

High school students do bioinformatics research on the lab computers at Rutgers. They were able to compare their sequence to other DNA sequences and predict the functions of the genes. They then went on to publish their findings throiugh the National center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the National Institutes of Health.
