I just finished my second rotation (in the Kellogg lab), where I was characterizing Sorghum meristem development. I have always wanted to do Scanning Electron Microscopy, and learning a new technique is always a welcome change of pace. As a bonus, I gleaned a wealth of Poaceae knowledge and an appreciation for the immense diversity in the family - plus, I got to take some really cool pictures! Above is an image of a Sorghum pedicel, with a dense indumentum of elongating trichomes.
