Alex's project is titled "The Origins of Reproductive phasiRNAs in the Angiosperms." He will be working with Blake Meyers at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, Missouri. The fellowship will fund his research for three years so that he can better understand the origin and diversification of phased, secondary, small interfering RNAs and their precursors during anther development across the angiosperms. This is a very competitive program. Way to go, Alex!!
