Summer 2009
 
David Lee, Wheaton College
ORIP Intern
David worked to sequence the resistance-breaking isolates of RYMV and compare their sequences to those of other isolates. He also worked to sequence MDMV-It and compare its sequence with those of non-resistance-breaking isolates from Ohio. Eventually, the results of these projects will lead to greater understanding of how changes in the genomes of these viruses allow them to break through established resistances.
 
 
Aimee Thompson, Hiram College
ORIP Intern
Aimee worked with graduate student Valdir Correa to characterize Stolbur phytoplasma genetic variability and phytoplasma-host interactions.  She also worked on a method to co-culture phytoplasmas in vitro using Drosophila S2 cells.
