Making Mutants

Bethany Zolman, Assistant Professor, Biology, UM St. Louis

While most people rip weeds from their front yards without a second thought, Bethany Zolman spends her time studying one virtually unknown weed, Arabidopsis thaliana. The assistant professor of biology at the University of Missouri-St. Louis finds that this plant serves as a perfect model organism for research because it grows quickly, is easily manipulated, and is comparable to the systems of crop plants.

The UMRB grant was critical in getting the data that we needed to acquire higher-level funding.
