A.O.S. is a club that conducts Research and Education in Molecular Genetics. It also supports the WSSP program in Jones' Advanced Placement Biology. We have over 250 genetic sequences published on the N.C.B.I. server. Just go to http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/  and search "Jones" to see all the genetic sequences co-published here by JP Students.

The A.O.S. Genetics Research Team is highly selective and made of about 10-15 students  - two or more of which will attend or have attended the Rutgers Waksman Student Scholar Program in the summer.  The “Genetics Research Team” will perform actual research with Rutgers University, not simply “cookbook” type labs which are common in academia. The research this year focuses on the genomic sequence analysis of the Duckweed Landoltia Punctata, and how the genes in this organism compare to other species. Students in the project will isolate and sequence genes from Landoltia Punctata and use bioinformatics to compare them to other organisms. Together, research scientists from Rutgers, teachers and students work together, using principles of molecular biology and genetic engineering to learn about the natural world and educate each other about the genetics of organisms.
