Bio

I am a graduate student of United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences, Iwate University, Japan and Graduate student ambassador of American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) and Plantae Fellow. My research interest is understanding the hormonal interplay in primary root development of Arabidopsis thaliana. I blog about plant science at www.aribidopsis.com.
