PGRP Seminar: Adrienne Roeder
11am to Noon, Cornell Vet School Auditorium (Lecture Hall 1)
“Size is a critical property of plants, yet we know little about how it is controlled. In the Roeder laboratory, we ask how does a cell know how big to be and how does the whole organ (e.g. leaf, sepal or petal) made up of many cells know how big to be. To answer these questions we image living plants on a confocal microscope and measure the growth of cells, examine the cell division pattern, and quantify fluorescent proteins expressed.”
Adrienne Roeder is a Nancy M. & Samuel C. Fleming Term Associate Professor at the the Weill Institute for Cell and Molecular Biology, and the Section of Plant Biology, School of Integrative Plant Science. Roeder is also a faculty advisor in BTI’s Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) internship program.
This seminar is hosted as part of BTI’s Plant Genome Research Program, taking place every Wednesday (except July 4th) from June 6th – August 1st, 2018.
