Post-Baccalaureate Researcher | Plant Biology

My current research involves characterizing extrafloral nectary (EFN) morphology, emergence, and secretion patterns in Populus tremula x alba. I am also generating SUT56KO lines in P. tremula x alba through agrobacterium mediated CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to investigate the role of sucrose transporters SUT5 and SUT6 in poplar.
