- 16th Annual Fall Symposium Creates Excitement About Microbes
- This year’s event was very social on Twitter by using the hashtag #MacroOfMicro and having the ability to access an online social media directory.
- 16th Annual Fall Symposium Creates Excitement About Microbes, The Donald Danforth Plant Science Center’s 16th annual Fall Symposium took place last week. More than 300 attendees came to the Center to listen and learn more about the theme of this year’s event, Macroinfluence of Microogranisms: Host-Microbe Interactions and Inspired Technologies. The symposium highlighted animal and plant pathogens, commensal microorganisms, microbiome scale investigations as well as research on the plethora

Microbes are the tiniest creatures on earth and huge colonies of them are found around plants, inside animals — including humans — on trees and in soil. Lately their importance and potential have gained increasing attention.
As organic food production and a move, of agricultural scientists are discovering that microbes can protect plants from pests and invasive species
- Student’s Enthusiasm for Soil Science Earns Her Accolades
- Monica Malone’s Honors Science Fair project placed first in the region and sent her to an international competition. Congratulations to Monica and all her recent success!
- together and we had this amazing idea.”
Microbes are involved in many important processes, is generally characterized by a high diversity and abundance of microbes. For the project, Monica studied the microbes in till vs no-till agricultural land. Tilling soil is essentially turning it over, content, pH, active carbon and organic matter. After that, I isolated microbes from the soil and grew them on synthetic media. I sequenced these microbes using the 16S ribosomal RNA gene. I sent the DNA
