CBE Seminar: Aptamers for environmental sensing
- Thursday, January 30, 2020 from 4:10pm to 5:00pm
- Linfield Hall, 301 - view map
Dr. Jed Eberly is an assistant professor of agronomy and soil microbiology at the Central Agricultural Research Center at Montana State University. His research is focused on applied and basic research related to the role of soil microorganisms in improving soil quality and crop performance. He has been developing a program that aims to improve understanding of microbial impacts on agronomic performance of dryland crops in central Montana, and evaluate the potential for seed and soil-applied microorganisms to alleviate plant stresses, increase plant growth and yield for crops. Jed has also worked on biodegradation of explosives that contaminate soil and groundwater and most recently has been working on development of monitoring strategies. His talk will highlight his work with aptamers as a novel biosensor for detecting environmental contaminants.
