David worked in the Bonning lab from 2004 to 2005 on the removal of transposon target sites from the baculovirus Autographa californca multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus fg25k gene. Transposon insertion into these target sites results in accumulation of a few polyhedra (fp) phenotype. It was later shown that removal of the sites delayed, but did not prevent accumulation of the fp phenotype. David subsequently received a Masters degree from Iowa State University and now works in the industrial sector.
