Microbe Facts


Two MSI Principal Investigators are featured in an article in the latest issue of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences publication Solutions. The article, “7 Things You Don’t Know About Microbes...But Probably Should,” features PIs Professor Linda Kinkel (Plant Pathology) and Professor Michael Sadowsky (Director, BioTechnology Institute; Soil, Water, and Climate). Professor Kinkel uses MSI to process the huge datasets involved in her group’s study of the composition, diversity, and function of plant-associated microorganisms. Professor Sadowsky uses MSI resources for metagenomic studies of the Mississippi River, soil, and the human intestinal tract.
