Dr. Ketia Shumaker accompanied a group of four internship students from the University of West Alabama to a 10-week summer research experience at PSU.

Please enjoy the video chronicling the research experience:

This is double the number of students from the previous year, and the group was able to assess the affect of ozone stress treatments in two species, black walnut and green ash. The students were introduced to all aspects of the research including growing tree seedlings in the greenhouse, ozone application, RNA extraction, RNA sequencing and gene expression analysis. The students received hands on training in molecular biology laboratory protocols.
