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 Natural Science Seminar Series involves informal, bi-weekly presentations that are open to everyone. They are sponsored by the CWU Department of Biological Sciences and the CWU College of the Sciences. Visitor parking permits are available to community members who would like to attend. Please contact the Biological Sciences Department at (509) 963-2731 by 12:00 pm on the day of the seminar to make arrangements.
