LSS 59: Fun with the Fungi.

LSS 59: Fun with the Fungi.

The fungi edition features Luisa Torres interview with Dr. Teresa Iturriaga and Robert Dirig of Cornell Plant Pathology Herbarium. They discussed the collection of preserved fungi samples, photos of mushrooms and lichens and pathologic specimen. This organization has been at Cornell University since the 1800s. If anyone is interested in checking out the collection of specimen the herbarium is open Mon-Sat from 8:00AM-9:00AM.

In the short segment, we learn about how baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is able to survive under stress conditions and how these same survival mechanisms are being utilized in other microbes pathogens.
Vandana Raghavan is a Ph.D. Candidate on the brink of defending her thesis in Dr Eric Alani's lab.
