Jordan Yacoub

My name is Jordan Yacoub. I am currently a junior at Georgia College majoring in Biology with a pre-medical concentration. I love learning about the human body as well as the way it can combat the ever changing ailments it encounters. However, my love for science is broader than just that. I have always had a real curiosity concerning understanding the world around me. I am excited by learning how things work and how various parts of life fit together like puzzle pieces. What attracted me to this lab was the opportunity to expand my understanding of how looking at the genes possessed by an organism can bring to light how just a few differences can completely change an organism. I am excited to learn more about population genetics, and molecular ecology during my time in Dr. Weese’s lab.
