Date: May 4, 2015. Kevin Panke-Buisse: Rhizosphere Microbiome: Manipulation and Investigation

Kevin Panke-Buisse is a PhD Candidate in the Kao-Kniffin Lab in the Horticulture section of the School of Integrative Plant Science at Cornell University.

Soil microorganisms found in the root zone impact plant growth and development, but the potential to harness these benefits is hampered by the sheer abundance and diversity of the players influencing desirable plant traits. This talk will outline some of the ways we can manipulate the rhizosphere microbiome and look at shifts across treatments via 16s sequencing.
