Directed Research in Plant Immunity Gene Discovery

Do you want to do research in biology, but cannot commit to many hours? Consider doing directed research in plant immunity gene discovery with Dr. Fumi Katagiri this spring 2016 semester. 

In this project, you can work to discover plant genes that are important in immunity by exploring natural variation in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. This is a team research project, with 12 to 20 students working together. For this position, students will work in the lab on the St. Paul campus for five hours per week (the time is pretty flexible) and participate in the weekly project meeting Fridays from 1:10 - 2:10 p.m. If you want to spend more hours for more credits, that can be arranged. Interested candidates should contact Dr. Katagiri at katagiri@umn.edu.
