He graduated with a PhD from Michigan State University Crop and Soil Science Dept. in 1993. My thesis project was with Dr. Mike Thomashow and I was involved with cloning the first cold-regulated genes from plants. I also did the initial characterization on the regulation of COR78 (RD29 and LTI78). I used phylogenetic foot printing to identify the putative (now proven) CBF binding site controlling the expression of the original 4 COR genes. I moved to Fargo ND to serve as a post-doc research associate for Dr. Lynn Dahleen (USDA-ARS, Small Grains Unit, Northern Crop Science Lab, Fargo, ND). That project was to use PCR techniques in conjunction with a near isogenic line to ID molecular markers linked to durable stem rust resistance gene RPG1. My current job is as a research Plant Physiologist with the USDA Plant Research Unit at the Red River Valley Agricultural Research Center in Fargo. My work centers around genomic analysis of bud dormancy and invasiveness in the perennial weed leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula). I have a side project looking at the genomics of crop/weed interactions in collaboration with Dr. Sharon Clay at South Dakota State University.
