Microbes for Healthier Crops

Microbes for Healthier Crops

MSI PI Linda Kinkel (professor, Plant Pathology) is the chief scientific officer for a new U of M startup called Jord Bioscience. The startup is based on Professor Kinkel’s research, which seeks to develop microbes that can be used instead of chemical pesticides to produce healthier and more productive crops. A story about this research and the company appears on the website of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences: Linda Kinkel: Using Microbes to Produce Healthier Crops.

Professor Kinkel uses MSI resources to analyze high-throughput amplicon sequencing data of soil fungi and bacteria.
