Manishi Pandey, a graduate student in the Dutcher Lab, recently defended her thesis and attended the hooding ceremony. Manishi was co-mentored by Prof. Susan Dutcher and Prof. Gary Stormo. She is interested in understanding the role of spliceosome proteins in splice site recognition. More specifically, her work examines non-core splicing factors and their role in defining the global splicing pattern in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Congratulations, Manishi!
