SURF’s Up with Maria Sorkin on Imgur

Maria Sorkin is a 2015 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship recipient with ASPB. As part of the program all SURFers must communicate their research with non-experts (preferably peers)  in an engaging manner. So Maria created the Imgur post:

In her post, Maria explains, Last summer, I used my funds from ASPB to study how Physcomitrella patens, a moss, uses seasonal cues to regulate reproductive development. This response pathway is controlled by the very complex ticking of the circadian clock.

Read the full post here. It includes clear explanations and clever graphics like:
