Contact: Kaye Wolfe, kaye.wolfe@unl.edu
Tessa Durham Brooks, associate professor of biology, Doane University, Crete, presents “Connecting Root Exudate Variation in Corn to Microbial Recruitment and Growth.” Root exudates are complex mixtures making up a chemical language for recruiting and establishing beneficial rhizosphere microbes. Rhizosphere microbes, in turn, help maintain the long-term health of the plant. Durham Brooks will highlight metabolomics and image-based approaches her lab and collaborators are using to begin to decipher these chemical messages.

Refreshments will be served at 3 pm.
