Get to Know Me!

Thank you for viewing my site! My name is Ryan Paukert, and I am from Zumbrota, Minnesota and a freshman at the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse. I am majoring in biomedical sciences with a minor in chemistry.  I then plan on doing something in the medical field. I also am apart of the football team here at La Crosse, but love watching and playing all kinds of sports.

I made this webpage on Malus domestica as a project for my Organismal Biology class, and the theme this year was "food organisms." I chose the apple because I love to eat them, and why not be an expert on such a common food item. If you would like to learn more about the diversity that other students at UW-L have researched, you can go to to do so.
