Seminar of Interest (Nov 17): Dr. Linda Kinkel

November 17, 2016 @ 4:10 pm - 5:00 pm

kinkelDr. Linda Kinkel (University of Minnesota) will be coming to MSU to present her group’s research on “Diffuse Symbioses: Pathogen Suppression in the Soil Microbiome.” Research in her laboratory is focused on the ecology of plant-associated micro-organisms, especially antibiotic-producing bacteria, in native prairie and in agricultural soils. As antibiotic-producing microbes can have significant negative effects on soil-borne plant pathogens and can enhance plant fitness, her lab’s work is directed to identify factors that influence the frequency and intensity of such activities within the soil-borne streptomycete community.
