Prof Nalini O

Associate Professor of Biology & Research

I teach Biology Honors Molecular Biology research, BSc1010c and Microbiology MCB 2010C in all 3 modes-
online, Hybrid and face to face modes.
Come prepared for my classes with assigned worksheets. Having prepared with basics we do activities that help in simplifying and learning the concepts. According to my students the action learning strategies I use not only keep the class exciting but also help them learn difficult biology concepts very easily.
You can reach me 24/7 for help via text or phone.
I have experience in genomics research, Bioinformatics, and environmental sample processing using EPA methods.
My goal is to provide students with quality lectures, best study skills, and research experience.
I select students and guide them to find internship and volunteer opportunities at various health-related organizations.
Valencia research project "DNA barcoding of plant species": You need research experience and we need students interested in genome research.
Interested students approach me with your resume.
