MSU AgBioResearch scientists are exploring ways to develop insecticides that protect fruit from insect pests such as fruit flies while safeguarding the environment and human health.
A MSU AgBioResearch scientist and his team are investigating whether this knowledge can be used to predict what will happen to the growth and regeneration of jack pine forests under future climate scenarios.
Using the only pilot plant-scale processing line for leafy greens in the country, a MSU AgBioResearch scientist and his team are working to provide food safety solutions for the growing and handling of leafy greens.
Cultures of photosynthetic bacteria (above) are used to develop microbial fuel cells that convert light into energy. Their green color is caused by the chlorophyll pigment that the bacteria use to fix the light.
