Welcome

Hello, I am Yoyo, a grade 11 student studying at Crofton House School in Vancouver. As a Future Science Leaders student I will be learning various skills required in life science research and will be participating in and conducting my very own research. I will be keeping detailed online notes of my adventures in the laboratory. This site also holds my writing about other cool science things. If you like somethings you read or want to share your thoughts on it, please leave a comment.  

The links on the right will let you explore the work of my fellow researchers.

However, an international group of researchers have done so with a type of parasitic roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans.  From a long […]
