Tony Contento's Problem Solving Experience:
--I developed a plant-based, in vivo, microscopic assay for detecting autophagosomes using an inexpensive, specific fluorescent stain.
--I helped develop a method using atomic force microscopy to determine changes in the physical properties of plant vacuole membranes.
--I developed a plant-based, in vivo, microscopic assay for detecting autophagosomes using a fluorescent fusion protein.
--I developed a protocol for the collection and analysis of full-transcriptome expression data from Arabidopsis tissue during sucrose starvation.
