POTD 1 13 12 pl pathology petunias

Penglin Sun, a Ph.D. student in Plant Biology at Penn State, took RNA samples from petunia buds on Jan.13 at Buckhout Laboratory on the University Park campus. With temperatures outside in the teens, the controlled warmth of the Buckhout greenhouse allows the petunias to bloom out of season permitting research to continue throughout the year.
