This report documents progress for the parent project 3622-22000-033-00D. We fully met the intent of objective which was to serve as a research mentor for a student from Lincoln University, an 1890’s university, while that student participated in a summer undergraduate research program at the University of Missouri, a neighboring land grant university. The student successfully completed the program.
