Mayfield Lab Volunteer Application: 2017-18
The Mayfield Lab at UCSD conducts research into gene regulation in eukaryotic algae and the use of this algae for the production of human therapeutic proteins and as a platform for biofuel production. Research also involves developing molecular tools for algal genetic transformation. The lab is part of the California Center for Algae Biotechnology (Cal-CAB) in the Food & Fuel for the 21st Century organized research unit.

The Mayfield Lab offers opportunities to volunteers or 199 students to work under the supervision of graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and lab staff to assist in all aspects of the research, as well as at the greenhouse, algae growth room, and/or other science outreach projects. Volunteers should expect to be assisting in the transformation, growing, harvesting and processing of algae as well as some regular lab maintenance, including preparation of media, solutions and samples of cultured algae for analysis.
