Come join us for Psyllids and Microbes: Friends or Foes?, a Natural Science Seminar that proves to be a fascinating look at bacteria of the genus Wolbachia that infect insects. Dr. Rodney Cooper, Research Entomologist for the Yakima Agricultural Research Laboratory, will explain his current research on the effects of Wolbachia among several haplotypes of the potato psyllid and possible applications to control the pest.
The seminar will be held this Friday, May 9th in Science 147. Refreshments are served at 3:50 and the seminar is from 4:00-5:00. All are welcome to attend! The Natural Science Seminar Series is sponsored by the CWU Biological Sciences Department and the College of the Sciences. Visitor parking permits are available to community members who would like to attend. Please contact the Biological Sciences Dept. at 963-2731 by 12:00 on the day of the seminar to make arrangements.
