Stephanie in the lab

The National Institutes of Heath REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in areas of research funded by the NSF. The REU program provided funding for a summer project for Stephanie, who visited UC Berkeley in 2015 from the University of Hawaii.

Stephanie worked with Yvonne in the Fischer lab and successfully constructed several useful clones for Yvonne's work on RNA-directed DNA methylation in Arabidopsis reproduction
