Faculty Advisor: Maria Harrison
Mentor: Jinyuan Liu

Cory is currently a student at Baldwin-Wallace College. During this past summer in the Harrison lab, Cory worked with mentor Jinyuan Liu. They transformed Medicago truncatula to over-express a serine threonine kinase and found that the mutants couldn’t express these proteins and were unable to form symbiotic associations with arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi.
