I'm a first year undergrad studying Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge. I'll be investigating the LysM receptor kinases LYK1 and LYK3 under the supervision of Dr Chai Hao Chiu this summer. More specifically this will involve determining where LYK1 and LYK3 are localised within the root, isolating these receptors and characterising lyk1 and lyk3 strains in the extent of their colonisation by AM fungi.
