New grant to study the epigenetics of insecticide resistance!

We are excited to receive new funding from USDA AFRI Foundational grant from the Pests and Beneficial Species in Agricultural Production Systems program ($683,490). We will be studying the role of epigenetics in the evolution of insecticide resistance in the Colorado potato beetle, a major pest of potatoes, with Dr. Sean Schoville (UW), Dr. Stephanie McKay (Animal Science), and Dr. Russ Groves (UW).

We will be looking to bring in a Ph. D. student for the fall 2023!
