Sergio Minchey - Summer 2011

Sergio conducted a project during the summer of 2011that involved capturing a common songbird on campus (the tufted titmouse) and examining its blood under a microscope. This particular bird species tends to have unusual-looking white blood cells, and Sergio completed a systematic survey of this cell in approximately 20+ individual birds. All appeared to have this unusual cell morphology. The significance of this phenomenon is unknown, but the survey is an important first step in understanding its distribution in the population.
