MSI PI Kathryn Bushley (assistant professor, Plant and Microbial Biology) is featured on the College of Biological Sciences (CBS) website for her research that seeks to fight a soybean-destroying roundworm. The soybean-cyst nematode is highly damaging to Minnesota’s soybean crop. The Bushley lab is investigating the use of naturally occurring fungi as a method of fighting these nematodes. This story can be found on the CBS Connect blog: Seeking Soybean-Friendly Fungi.
Professor Bushley uses MSI resources for research into the evolution, diversity, and functions of fungal secondary metabolites.
