MERC partners on NSF award to develop resistant sorghum varieties and more
The Methodology and Evaluation Research Core Facility (MERC) is proud to partner with entomologist Joe Louis on his five-year, $1.5 million Faculty Early Career Development Program award from the National Science Foundation. Louis is investigating ways to help sorghum naturally resist sugarcane aphids, the crop’s most damaging pest in the United States. With this information, breeders and molecular biologists will be able to develop sorghum varieties with naturally resistant traits.
