CONTINUING EDUCATION (continued from previous page)



  • Fusarium Laboratory Workshop - Attended this week long course, taught by an international team of experts, was attended by 42 scientists from 13 states and 17 countries.   Species of the Fusarium fungus are significant causes of a wide variety of plant diseases.  These fungi also have the potential to contaminate grain through the production of mycotoxins that are known to be injurious to animal and human health.  The workshop focused on laboratory identification and characterization of fungal cultures using standard and molecular biology techniques. Workshop held on June 22-27, 2003 at Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS.

  • Rare & Invasive Plants of Arkansas Conference – Attended conference held on October 23 & 24, 2003 at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, AR.
