About the Speaker
University: Oklahoma State University
Research Interests: Dr. Schoenknecht’s group studies the physiology and evolution of plant membrane transport proteins. Ongoing research projects are:
- Annotation and analysis of the genome of the thermoacidophilic red alga Galdieria sulphuraria. The analysis of the Galdieria genome has been published in Science.
