That's the beauty of Hanover

Our students start companies, create social movements, and examine wildlife in the wild – and that’s just while they’re here. After they leave, they join a powerful alumni network of high achievers, with connections to jobs and educational opportunities in every field.

With summer slowly coming to a close it is time to highlight our summer research students.Up first Monique (MO) Huynh who worked with Dr. Pretorius:This summer I worked on identifying two mosquito subspecies, Culex pipiens pipiens, and Culex pipiens quinquefasciatus, that are morphologically identical and reside in southeastern Indiana. I used molecular techniques targeting two genes, COI (mitochondrial) and ACE2 (nuclear), to differentiate between the subspecies. Both subspecies of mosquitoes are of interest because Culex pipiens are disease vectors for West Nile Fever.
