Congratulations to Suba, who won third place at last week's Biology Undergraduate Honours Thesis Poster Day. Suba has been working on generating a quintuple mutant in Arabidopsis whereby five related E3 ubiquitin ligases are knocked out. It's been a trying exercise in PCR genotyping and some serious patience! She is now very close to obtaining this mutant, which will allow us to test some hypotheses about the function of these enzymes in protein turnover.
This award reflects her hard work - congrats Suba!
