Congratulations to Nripesh Dhungel in Anita Hopper's lab whose manuscript "Beyond tRNA cleavage: novel essential function for yeast tRNA splicing endonuclease unrelated to tRNA processing" was accepted for publication in Genes and Development. The work was supported, in part, by a Pelotonia graduate
This is a new post-BS program for underrepresented groups . The program is part of a new NSF research grant obtained with Erich Grotewold. The goal of the program is to help training of underrepresented students just after their BS so they can move into graduate education.
Erich Grotewold, Professor of Molecular Genetics and Horticulture & Crop Science, and director of the Center for Applied Sciences (CAPS), is the Principal Investigator on a $4,234,908 National Science Foundation (NSF) project to address fundamentally important questions in plant research.
Outstanding news. Erich Grotewold, Andrea Doseff, and John Gray (University of Toldeo) received a huge NSF grant for "Systems Approaches to Identify Gene Regulatory Networks in the Grasses". Wonderful for Erich and Andrea, MG, and OSU.
Congratulations to Patrice Hamel (in collaboration with postdoc. Corvest, tech Murray, the Knaff lab at Texas Tech and the Guard group at the CNRS, France) whose new studies on mitochondrial cytochrome C assembly were accepted for publication in Molecular Microbiology!
Our chair, Anita Hopper, was awarded the 2012 Distinguished Scholar Award. She was presented with this prestigious award by Dr. Gordon Gee at our faculty meeting held on Monday, January 9. Please extend your congratulations to her!
