International flavor in Kearney plant pathology lab
An international assemblage of minds is a key element in Themis Michailides' plant pathology lab at the UC Kearney Agricultural Research and Extension Center. Michailides is a plant pathologist and lecturer in the Department of Plant Pathology at UC Davis and based at Kearney.
Among the plant disease issues being addressed in the lab are aflatoxins in pistachios and almonds, black heart of pomegranate and limb dieback of figs.
Below are some of the new faces who joined the Michaelides team in summer 2012.
