42nd Annual Midwest/Southeast Photosynthesis Meeting

Last week the Pakrasi Lab made its annual journey to Turkey Run State Park in Marshall, Indiana to attend the 42nd Midwest/Southeast Photosynthesis Meeting. This year Deng Liu and Kristen Wendt gave oral presentations and Justin Ungerer, Po Chen Lin, Anindita Banerjee, and Cory Knoot presented posters. Kristen Wendt was awarded a prize for her presentation on CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing in cyanobacteria. The lab also had the chance to enjoy the park during the meeting, taking advantage of the good weather and Turkey Run’s numerous hiking trails. Some family members even came along to enjoy the non-scientific aspects of the trip. Check out the gallery tab to see pictures taken during this event!
