Roger Sauterer, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Biology
124F Martin Hall


I have been at JSU for 28 years.   My professional training was in Cell Biology, and I have been teaching Cell Biology and Animal Developmental Biology since I started here.   My primary research interest is the interactions between histones (nuclear proteins that organize DNA and regulate transcription) with mitochondria, especially in plant and yeast cells.
