Nikhil joined our group as part of the Werner H. Kirsten Student Intern Program (SIP) program for the 2012-2013 school year, and we have had the privilege of having him back again this summer. He has been working on an automated microbiome pipeline and will be returning to St. Bonaventure University this fall. Madelyne also joined our group as a high school junior in 2012 and has been with us for two years now. She has been working recently on a software tool for inference of admixture in recently admixed populations and will be attending Stanford University this fall. I'm pleased to see them both moving on to further their educations, but I'm also a little sad to see them go.
