Molly Basset is a student at the University of Kansas. Her project was titled “Identification of the Causal Agent of Black Gill in Commercially Important White Shrimp (Litopenaeus setiferus) in Coastal Georgia Waters through Molecular Methods.” Ashleigh Price was her primary mentor. As a result of her summer research she was able to obtain the complete sequence of the shrimp Black Gill ciliate’s 18S rRNA gene which supported its identification as an apostome ciliate.
