Zach is currently a senior attending SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. As an intern, Zach worked under the supervision of his mentor, post-doc Julian Levy on the role of Gibberellic Acid related genes of Medicago truncatula and their Involvement in the Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis. In the process of completing his project, Zach learned several ‘wet lab’ skills such as reverse transcriptase PCR, gel electrophoresis, and microscopy.
