Governor General's Silver Medalist, Amy Hayduk, examines the fluorescent properties of a new RNA probe. Hayduk, a 2006 graduate, received a NSERC USRA to continue working with Dr. Stephen Rader on RNA splicing. Using a powerful tool known as "molecular beacons", she developed a new way to measure specific RNA molecules that is highly sensitive and significantly faster than existing methods.
