Hidden breaks are a unique structural feature in rRNA found in plants' chloroplasts that have not been studied extensively. My goal is to eventually establish how hidden breaks may correspond to plant survival under environmentally stressful conditions. The goal of this particular seeding grant will be to develop an effective method to analyze and compare the extent of these hidden breaks in coffee, rice, and spinach leaves under heat, cold, and stress conditions.
