UNT student completes first-ever mapping of Arabidopsis thaliana seed

Drew SturtevantBiological sciences doctoral student Drew Sturtevant completed 3-D chemical imaging of the inside of an Arabidopsis thaliana seed, which has never been mapped before. The seed's small size, rapid life cycle and ability to produce thousands of other seeds make it perfect for plant research.

His work puts UNT at the forefront in this field and enables other research. His breakthrough was published in the journal BBA Molecular and Cell Biology of Lipids.
