PhD Plant Biology, 2019
Ohio University, Athens, OH
Anne joined the Wyatt Lab during the spring semester of 2015. She is currently a first-year PhD student in the Department of Environmental and Plant Biology. Her research involves annotating the Viola pubescens genome for later use in examining the gene(s) and environmental cues that may responsible for the developmental switch from open, abiotic or biotically pollinated chasmogamous flowers, to those of closed, self-pollinating cleistogamous flowers. Anne’s hometown is Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She completed her undergraduate studies at California University of Pennsylvania, where she majored in biology and conducted research on the embryonic effects of teratogenic agents and the epigenetic modifications they cause.
