Anjali Dogra Gray, Ph.D.
Professor and Chair, Biology and Health Sciences, Lourdes University
“I received a top-notch education and research experience at the University of Missouri-Columbia, which prepared me for the rigors of the work in the “real world.” My graduate studies made me more aware of what is expected of science majors when they graduate with their degrees. Now I am a professor and I feel well equipped to guide students towards careers in science. Mizzou will always have a special place in my heart.”
First artificial chromosomes in plants
Developed by Dr. James Birchler, these engineered mini-chromosomes can be designed to specification, with the potential of genes or entire biochemical pathways added or removed as needed. In addition to shedding light on the behavior of chromosomes, artificial chromosomes also have potential applications in agriculture, biotechnology, and the pharmaceutical industry.
