Jose is now attending the University of California at Berkeley. As an intern, Jose worked under the supervision of his mentor, post-doc Julian Levy on the silencing of kinases and nodulin transripts imiplicated in arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis in Medicago trunculata. In the process of completing his project, Jose learned several ‘wet lab’ skills such as reverse transcriptase PCR, gel electrophoresis, bacterial innoculation, and plasmid DNA extraction.
