About This Project
Mycorrhizal communities are a fundamental mutualistic interaction between soil fungi and trees. However, the interaction between soil bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi is vastly unknown. Since these microorganisms have fundamental roles in carbon and nitrogen fixation, we would implement a biosensor device to assess the spatiotemporal distribution of mycorrhizal-bacterial species and how their diversity and abundance affect trees grown in challenging environments.
