Caught in the Act

By Dr. Rose Davidson, STEM Coordinator
See what our students were working on last week:
“Zoology” students, shown at right, carried out a population simulation to determine which strategies would best remedy the effects of overfishing.

“Honors Biology” students isolated the DNA of strawberries during their genetics unit. The gelatinous mass forming in the red tube contains the DNA.

“AP/ACP Biology” students are shown transferring the gene for green fluorescent protein from jellyfish to bacteria, which will enable the bacteria to fluoresce under certain types of light.
St. Joseph’s Academy is a private, Catholic high school for girls in St. Louis, Missouri, sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Our mission is to provide quality Catholic education for young women in an environment that challenges them to grow in faith, knowledge, and respect for self and others. Our community expects these young women to make a profound impact in the world.
