Biology senior Merritt Burch just returned from her NSF funded REU internship at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln where she studied snRNA processing and miRNA regulation in Arabidopsis thaliana. Burch helped identify mutants defective in pollen and embryo development and showed the critical importance of C-terminal domain processing of snRNAs in the plant’s development.
