Confocal Imaging of Lichen Symbiosis
Under the supervision of Klara Scharnagl, we will be using confocal microscope imaging to closely observe the symbiotic relationships between fungi and algal cells using various lichen samples. The microscope will help us visualize how fungal projections physically interact with algal cells and how this interaction affects both systems.
Message To SponsorThank you donors for supporting the URAP summer research program! As I move towards the end of my undergraduate career I have found myself more interested in research and the ways that it encourages curiosity. I am immensely grateful for being able to continue practicing my lab techniques and working with the research team towards revealing new knowledge surrounding the summer project. Thank you again!
