Avery Tucker

Personal Plant Story .....................................................................Why I got into biology


BS, Environmental Plant Biology, Ohio University (anticipated December 2013)

BA, East Asian Studies, Ohio University (anticipated December 2013)

Avery joined Dr. Wyatt's research group during the fall quarter of 2011. He is currently working from a set of microarray data to identify putative genes involved with the gravitropic signal transduction pathway. By selecting for T-DNA gene knockouts followed by mutant phenotype characterization and submission to the GPS treatment he hopes to find significant genes. A typical day in the lab involves running PCR and RT-PCR or gel electrophoresis, tending to plants, and reading relevant literature.
