Meet Colin Kruse

Colin joined Dr. Wyatt’s research group in the fall of 2014. Currently his work includes two projects: 1) analysis of RNA from plants flown on the International Space Station and 2) tool development for network analysis of gene expression data. The spaceflown plants were grown from seed in the microgravity environment of space and could prove crucial in the identification of gravity related genes. Colin currently serves as lab manager allowing him the opportunity to learn the logistics involved with supporting a large group of highly active undergraduate researchers.

Colin is also applying to graduate school with hopes of joining the Wyatt Lab as a master’s student.
