Research Project:

Investigating serpentine tolerance and sensitivity in Caulanthus amplexicaulis varieties using de novo assembly and whole genome resequencing approach.

Broader Impacts of Research Project:

Production of another genome map and analysis for further understanding of the genetic mechanisms that may be causing serpentine endemism.  Allows for future research for use in phytoremediation techniques
