Grants and Contracts Details
The undergraduate intern, Ms. Amanda Kaiser, for whom funds are requested will perform independent research projects that work towards the completion of a portion of the NSF-funded project (IOS 0749731) related to elucidating the role of glycerol metabolism in plant defense. The objectives of their research will be to characterize second-site suppressor mutants of gly1 plants. These suppressors were isolated by screening gly1 M2 plants for mutants that showed, wild-type-like or better, resistance response to Colletotrichum higginsianum. These screens were carried out by former undergraduate students, Ms. Guerra, Ms. Carolyn Butt and Mr. Steven Bliss. A total of 32 putative suppressors were isolated and of these 4 are currently being characterized by Ms. Amanda Kaiser.
