Four SUNY Cobleskill biotech students attended the Northeastern Section of the American Society of Plant Biology at Ithaca College on Saturday, April 23, 2016. The conference participants were primarily graduate and post-doctoral researchers, however, our students were well received. The SUNY Cobleskill students each presented a poster, representing their research in the fields of biotechnology, including genetic engineering in soybean and switchgrass, the development of hop identification and genotyping, and coffee chemical profiling. Clara Richardson, Sophie LaRochelle, Corey Johnson and Ying Li represented fifteen junior and senior students currently involved in undergraduate research under the tutelage of Drs. Zeng and McMaster-Schuyler, professors at SUNY Cobleskill.

Sophie LaRochelle – Chemically Developed Kopi Luwak Shows Better Taste Profile
Corey Johnson – Genetic Screening of Hops via RAPDs-PCR Analysis
Ying Li – Genetic Engineering Drought Tolerant switchgrass by Overexpressing CodA, a bacterium gene of choline oxidase A (COX)
