  • Role
    Scientist Mentor: I will mentor teams of students online

  • Research Interests (300 words)
    My research interests lie in the morphological and biochemical characterization of single and multigene mutants of ubiquitin specific proteases (UBPs) within Arabidopsis thaliana. My research in bioinformatic and phylogenetic analyses of ubiquitin specific proteases throughout plant and animal species has revealed conservation and divergence of UBPs amongst species. I’ve used plasmid construction/site-directed mutagenesis followed by DNA/RNA and morphological analyses to implicate the role and importance of gene domains and post-translational modifications to gene function. I also have experience in genotyping, phenotyping, southern blotting, SDS-PAGE, cloning, bacterial cell culture techniques, plant transformation, and various cell, DNA/RNA and protein purification methods.

Good afternoon Team B! As you have found out research does not always go as planned, and as much as we hope to prepare for pitfalls in our work we often can not. What is so impressive is that you guys immediately came up with a plan B and didn't…
