Hello everybody! My name is Wannisa Ritmahan. I conducted my master thesis at the laboratory of in Nematology on the topic “Characterising Orsay virus infection in C. elegans N2 and CB4856 Strains” for six months.
I was not familiar with this topic at all from the beginning and it was really challenging to be here. I was always fascinated by the use of little nematode as a model species from the first day up until now. I had a chance to perform useful techniques like qRT-PCR and microarray analysis. I also learned a lot from the colloquium, peer-reviewing system (thesis ring) and self-study. I was really grateful to be there. Last but not least I would like to thank for such a warm and friendly environment. I wish you all the best.
