This news item is about: This year marks Don Miller's 19th anniversary with the Baker Institute for Animal Health. Miller's progression to his position as Research Support Specialist and Laboratory Manager in Dr. Douglas Antczak's lab is a remarkable story. Miller began as an entry-level technician with no formal training or experience in biology. He did, however, come with a deep knowledge of horses from working in the Standardbred racing industry for several years. Within a few months it became apparent that Miller was well suited to laboratory work, and to molecular biology in particular. He quickly mastered techniques in gene cloning, amplification, expression, and sequencing. Miller's natural talents also led him to learn programming for various computational biology applications required to analyze data the Antczak lab was generating as part of the international Horse Genome Project.
