While some of the MBL courses have ended and students have re-dispersed, with promises to stay in touch, the Brown/MBL graduate students are looking forward to the academic year in Woods Hole. This photo of Brown/MBL student Anupriya (Priya) Dutta, who is pouring a gel in a Bay Paul Center lab at sunset, captures the long, light-filled days of August when the excitement of fall is still around the corner. Fellow Brown/MBL student Alex Valm took the photo of Dutta, who is working with MBL faculty member David Mark Welch on genome evolution of bdelloid rotifers.
