Scientific American publishes an article on Crops in silico

Here is a link to the article.

Amy and Katy funded by NSF to study medicago/rhizobia mutualisms!

NSF IOS Award #1645875 Systems genetics of symbiotic quality in legume-rhizobium mutualism. We are going to build “symbiosis networks” using genomic, transcriptomic, and metabolomic data to determine the molecular underpinnings of high and low partner quality in the medicago/sinorhizobium mutualism. Can I get a woo woo! Go team!
