Thrilled to be starting a new USDA-NIFA funded project investigating the continental-scale population genomics of the Fall armyworm with recent lab graduate, Dr. Ashley Tessnow. The project stems from Ashley’s dissertation research. She played a huge role in writing the grant which will fund her research for the next three years as a postdoc. The work involves a multi-year coast-to-coast US sampling effort made possible by an essential network of university and USDA collaborators. Read more about the project here.
