This week, we featured Sukhindervir Sandhu and how he is using an undergrad research award to make discoveries. What exactly is he researching? Watch this video to learn how Sandhu is using virus-induced gene silencing to make plants act differently. Tags: #KUdiscoveries #KUresearch #Plants #Genes #Biology

KU student tricks monkey flower into growing protective ‘hair’ Thanks to a KU Undergraduate Research Award (see more at http://ugresearch.ku.edu/student/fund/ugra), Sukhindervir Sandhu, a KU junior in biochemistry, figured out which genetic button to push to get a monkey flower, or Mimulus guttatus, to grow protective trichomes, or plant hair. Sandhu was able to track it down to a gene called SKP-1. By silencing SKP-1, he discovered that gene regulates plant hair growth in monkey flowers.
