SPUR

Roman has been working in the lab since December 2014, having been recruited from the Fall 2014 Plant Morphology course.  Roman is working with Kelsie on the evolution of CUC/NAM genes in the evolution of flower form, specifically testing for its role in the fusion (or lack of separation) of floral parts.  Roman recently received a SMART award and spent summer 2015 in the lab of Dr. Mary Wildermuth, taking his awesome love for plants to a new level!  He recently received a student initiated SPUR to continue working in the Wildermuth lab, investigating plant defense mechanisms using Arabiopsis and powerdery mildew as model systems.
