    About This Project

    The genus Sarracenia, carnivorous pitcher plants native to North America, presents a long-standing evolutionary puzzle. While their ecology and morphology exemplify a carnivorous lifestyle, it is unknown how these plants obtain the enzymes necessary for digestion. Current research seeks to identify digestive genes in the plant genome, but the pitcher's microbial community is likely essential. Added transcriptomics will allow the untangling of vital plant-microbe interactions.
