Lab Members

Huawen Lin studied sex determination in the unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas and earned a Ph.D. degree in Plant Physiology from Washington University. She joined the Dutcher lab as a postdoc and worked on Chlamydomonas flagella, nicotinamide metabolism, and sex determination.  Currently Huawen is an instructor in the lab. Her research focuses on developing new methods based on next generation sequencing to identify causative mutations from multiple flagellar and basal body mutants and performing functional characterization of these mutants.
