Taxa Studied: Plants, Medicago truncatula
Techniques Employed: Quantitative PCR (qPCR), Sanger Sequencing, Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis, SNP Mapping, Sectioning for Histology, Sectioning for Electron Microscopy, Epifluoresence Microscopy, Confocal Microscopy, Transgenesis, Mutagenesis, RNA interference(RNAi)
Research Description: I am interested in learning how legumes altered their development to accommodate a bacterial endosymbiont. In particular, I am interested in how pre-existing developmental modules have been recruited for nodule development and how the plant uses hormonal signals (triggered by changing environmental conditions) to determine whether to form a lateral root or a symbiotic nodule.
