Caltech professor Rob Phillips and some of his students in New Zealand to explore a tropical rainforest…at the foot of a glacier. A climatic impossibility? No, it’s just the gorgeous, startling South Island. Caltech will introduce you to a land you would not find on your own. Our local guide also arranges for naturalists, historians and other experts to share their knowledge. As part of this trip, Phillips and several of his students will provide an optional (not included in tour price) weekend long molecular biology boot camp at Caltech on September 9 and 10, 2017 aimed at giving our travelers the chance to see how to obtain DNA sequences and how such sequences can be used to understand how the animals and plants of New Zealand got there.
