Richie: "I work in a lab -- that's part of it -- and in the lab I'm doing some research. Some of the research would be involved with areas in the DNA technologies -- in particular the technique known as DNA profiling and that encompasses really a large range techniques such as restriction fragment lymph polymorphisms -- which is better known as RFLP polymerase chain reaction -- which goes by the name of PCR. But a lot of the work that I also do involves writing or presenting results of work at various conferences or workshops."
