Research topics: We want to understand how plant compounds affect animal central nervous system and behavior.
Techniques: We use chemotaxis of the model worm, Caenorhabditis elegans, as a bioassay to look for plant compounds that affect animal behavior.
Seeking undergrads for: Summer
Required skills: None
This lab is particularly interested in mentoring: Undergrads from backgrounds that are underrepresented in STEM
How to apply: Contact Dr. Rhee (email@example.com)
Project information: This summer, we want to work with a small team of undergraduate students to conduct a chemotaxis screen using C. elegans and a variety of plant compounds.
