Dave Robinson and Joann Lau from Bellarmine College in Kentucky are going to be describing their student project in a free webinar next Friday, May 16th. Their students clone GAPDH (Glyceraldehyde 3-Phosphate Dehydrogenase) genes from new plants, assemble the DNA sequences, and submit them to the NCBI. Here's an example.

Plus, since GAPDH is a highly conserved, it's a great model for looking at evolution.

The cool thing about plants is that there's lots of material to work with.
