Michelle Facette Papers

Submitted by mparkllan on Fri, 03/23/2018 - 13:15

Michelle Facette received her Ph.D. in biological sciences from Stanford University in 2008 and now works in the Department of Biology at the University of New Mexico. I attended her  guest lecture on the fifteenth of February and she summarized some of her work with stomata, cell differentiation, and other developmental aspects of Maize in a concise and understandable way. While she has helped author many papers I believe the majority of the concepts discussed at this job talk came from a few papers that cite her as an author published in 2012, 2013, and 2015. These papers titled: Division Polarity in Developing Stomata, Parallel Proteomic and Phosphoproteomic Analyses of successive Stages of Maize Leaf Development, and The SCAR/WAVE complex polarizes PAN receptors and promotes division asymmetry in maize, all use maize as a model organism to look at intracellular and intercellular chemical cues,  as well as other aspects of leaf development.



The last sentence of your paragraph is very long and strung together with commas and a colon. I feel like the sentence could be broken up and made into two or three separate sentences and would be much more effective at conveying the information and aid to the flow of your paper.

There are several run on sentences here. Varying sentence structure combined with overall shorter sentence length would strengthen this paragraph.
