TriLink BioTechnologies, Inc. (TriLink) announced that it has awarded Dr. Mary Lai Preuss of Webster University 78 CleanAmp™ Primers and corresponding quantities of CleanAmp™ dNTPs for map-based cloning of Arabidopsis root hair developmental mutants. These reagents will support Dr. Preuss’ undergraduate research students’ hands-on training in sequence analysis, primer design, PCR, molecular mapping and ultimately sequencing of genes.

“Arabidopsis root hairs are single, highly elongated cells. Understanding the molecular mechanisms for growth of this single cell can provide valuable information about the growth of all cells. I think the TriLink ResearchRewards Program provides a terrific opportunity for our undergraduate students at Webster University to engage in research at the molecular level,” stated Dr. Preuss, Assistant Professor, Biological Sciences at Webster University.

Dr. Linda Chelico at the University of Saskatchewan received a ResearchReward, Oligonucleotides for Exploring the Replication of the Retrovirus HIV, earlier this year and affirmed, “I am happy that I got the award because as a new investigator it has really helped me to obtain all the DNA substrates I need for my research program.” Since its inception in 2002, TriLink’s ResearchRewards Program has supported over 30 projects. Areas of research include nucleotide selectivity of error prone RNA viral polymerases, PCR primer design for undergraduate teaching and research, CleanAmp™ Primers for detection of mRNA expression and DNA repair studies of cross-linked DNA.

“We are proud to contribute to the development of our industry through a program that provides the nucleic-acid based products needed to push the frontiers of our science. The ResearchRewards Program targets educators and academic researchers who need additional reagents to teach basic concepts or supplement their primary funding,” said TriLink CEO, Richard Hogrefe.
